    Personally, I think Eleanor is a superb name. Two of the greatest females in history were named Eleanor (Eleanor of Aquitaine and Eleanor Roosevelt), what more one ask for? I also think that Felix Eleanor has a nice ring to it (and Felix is so badass on a girl).

    Other suggestions (exclusively based on historical female figures):
    Anne (Queen of England)
    Clara (Barton)
    Freyja/Freya/Freja (Norse goddess)
    Louisa/May (Alcott)
    Marie (Curie)
    Matilda/Maud (Empress and Lady of the English, first female ruler of England)
    Rosa/Rosalind (Parks/Franklin)
    Saga (Norse goddess)

    Current favourite combinations: Henry Ásgeirr Edmund • Amaury Charles Fyodor • Alexander Adelin Lórien

    How about Guinevere? Very rich in history and feminine, but still sounds strong.

    I really liked the suggestions of Hazel and Belle. Fae would also pair nicely with Rowan's Jane.

    @judyariel, Merit Ophelia is beautiful, I love it. I've always loved Ophelia (and the Spanish Ofelia) but I'm always discouraged by the negative Shakespeare character and the "Oh-feel-ya" jokes.

    Sawyer Judith and Sawyer Matilda are awesome too.

    I love Eleanor for the same reasons. It's just a strong, almost saintly name with an amazing history. My husband is kind of "Eh" on it though, and has said in the past he thinks it's ugly. Boo.
