    Could Lena be a nickname for Eleanor?

    Hi!

    I'm thinking of changing my nickname and I was wondering if you thought that Lena (lee-nah) could be a nickname for Eleanor? Is it too disconnected?
    Thanks,
    Ellie xx

    I vastly prefer Lena over Leah, which I think you were considering a few posts back. Lena freshens up Eleanor's sort of vintage-ness, and it was even used as a standalone name for the main character of the Beautiful Creatures books and film.

    I think Lena works really well as a nn for Eleanor. I agree with the pp that it freshens up the name a bit.

    I love Eleanor nn Lena! If I had changed my name about a year back, that was one of my highest contenders. I agree that it livens Eleanor up a bit. I would love to meet an Eleanor nn Lena.
