I don't know why your husband has such a negative reaction to the spelling Eleanor. Is it common for people to pick apart names and find words in their own language? Many names/words have "ano" in them (Giuliano, Luciano, Mariano, Silvano, Stefano, Vanora, Americano, Italiano, Milano etc... and I've never heard anyone having a problem with them). I like Eleanor the best but Elinor is ok too.

Elinor is my favorite
Elinore -that last 'e' sort of bothers me a bit, partly because it's a silent letter..if someone were writing her name they might not put that final e, and while it's not too big a deal, it could get a bit tiresome for her..
Eleonor -sounds like a donkey bray to me..i see e-leon-or, draw out the r sound..and yeah..no offense intended..just couldn't help but think that.
Eleonore- same as Elinore
Elenor -hmm..i guess this would be my second choice
Elenore- same as the other 'e' two..Alyssa*Ada*Lydia*Aria*Leah*Elijah*Peter*Paul*Calvin*
