    Eleanor or Elinor

    We have Lilla (Lil-la short i sound like Lily) and Vivienne. We are planning to name a third girl Eleanor/Elinor. I prefer the Eleanor looks but wonder if I should stick with i theme and use the Elinor spelling. We pronounce it with the i sound not the a sound so that also makes me wonder if we should spell it with the I. Thoughts?

    I prefer Elinor, but I'm in the minority here on NB.

    At least where I live (Northern USA) Eleanor is the only spelling used for Eleanor/Elinor, so it would cause a lot less confusion.
    Right Now I would name them...

    If you pick Elinor, you'll spend a lot of time correcting it. Besides, Eleanor has an A in it, just like Lilla, and an E in it, just like Vivienne does.
