    I don't know why your husband has such a negative reaction to the spelling Eleanor. Is it common for people to pick apart names and find words in their own language? Many names/words have "ano" in them (Giuliano, Luciano, Mariano, Silvano, Stefano, Vanora, Americano, Italiano, Milano etc... and I've never heard anyone having a problem with them). I like Eleanor the best but Elinor is ok too.

    Elinor is my favorite

    Elinore -that last 'e' sort of bothers me a bit, partly because it's a silent letter..if someone were writing her name they might not put that final e, and while it's not too big a deal, it could get a bit tiresome for her..

    Eleonor -sounds like a donkey bray to me..i see e-leon-or, draw out the r sound..and offense intended..just couldn't help but think that.

    Eleonore- same as Elinore

    Elenor -hmm..i guess this would be my second choice

    Elenore- same as the other 'e' two..

    I love the look of Eleanor so it's hard for me to choose but I understand your husband's concerns. Elinor is the only one that looks like an established spelling to me, the others do read as trendy to me. I think Elinor and Josef look lovely together
