For the beacon of light coming to make the world a brighter place, Nelle is a worthy choice for your little sunbeam. This feminine name was once a vintage nickname for the Greek Helen and French Eleanor, which share the meanings “shining one” and “sun ray.” Graceful in its simplicity and uplifting chime, baby Nelle will be free to shine just as they are with this charming appellation.
