    If you don't like Eleanor I would go with Elinor

    I agree, Elinor. I personally prefer Eleanor, but I can understand your husband's issue with it, and I think Elinor is a lovely alternative (plus, the lovely Miss Dashwood makes it so appealing!).

    I prefer Elinor to Eleanor; the latter looks so extra-vowel-y and stodgy to me where Elinor looks clean and light (and Jane Austen-y!).
