Meaning:Shining light; Light-hearted
Elleanor is a creative respelling of the classic pick Eleanor. Like its wildly popular twin, it means "shining light" or "light-hearted" in Greek. It draws inspiration from Eleanor of Aquitaine, a 12th-century queen of both England and France. Nowadays, little ones may look to former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt for inspiration. If you're looking for a name that stands out in a crowd but still feels familiar and cozy, Elleanor might be the one. As the shining light in your life, they'll give you the courage to shine, too!
