Gender: Female Origin of Eleanora: Latinate form of Eleanor

Eleanora Origin and Meaning

The name Eleanora is a girl's name of Spanish, Italian origin.

Eleanor is back, Nora is back, and soon Eleanora will be too. Off the charts since the 1930s, this elaboration of the classic Eleanor was in common use for decades before falling from favor. Spelling Eleonora adds yet another syllable to make the pronunciation el-LAY-oh-nor-a, and you can try to instruct people to say Eleanora that way too, but most will pronounce it like Eleanor with an a at the end and that's just fine. That final vowel gives a serious, stately name a little flip at the end, making it more distinctive and modern if not right for every taste.

Love it. It feels elaborate and elegant but also sleek and not too frilly. Tons of nickname options, and both pronunciations are beautiful.

It's so perfectly delicate and girly, but with the nickname Nora which is cute and tomboyish in equal measures. I love this name, and it works so well with my favourite boys name, Eleazar.
