    Could Lana be a nickname for Eleanor?

    Hi!
    As I've said in Earlier posts, I'm changing my nickname. I'm posting about each possibility seperatly, so today it is Lana
    Could Lana be a nickname for Eleanor? Please imagine Lana said in a British accent (lar-nah)
    Is it attached enough? What sort of person comes into your mind when you think of Lana?
    Thank you
    Ellie xx

    I don't think it's too far fetched, but it wouldn't be my first choice as a nn for Eleanor. I'm not a huge fan of the sound of Lana, but I'm also from the southern US and am having a hard time hearing it in my head in the British accent.

    I think so

    pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
    not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
    (if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )

    IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!

    I think Lena is more intuitive nn. Prefer Lena over Lana.
