Gender: F

The final e introduces pronunciation questions. Is Eleanor pronounced just like Eleanor, or is it the more elaborate el-LAY-ah-nor? Or something else?

If you live in the U.S. and you want a version of this name with a more extravagant pronunciation, it would probably be best to choose a variation that's more obviously different from the original: Eleonora, for instance.
