    I voted Eleanor Frances nn Leni before I saw your daughter is Elsie.
    I think my second choice is Fances Leni, Theodora Faye very close behind.
    I love the nn Leni, I prefer it as a nn to Lenora or Lenore

    Eleanor Frances is my favourite and I like Leni as a nickname for Eleanor, and it's also a nice way of honouring your husband's family.

    I find Elsie and Eleanor a bit too close. I think it would be totally fine to go with Theodora nn. Teddy with a Ted in the family. I recently read and watched The Haunting of Hill House and two of the main characters are Eleanor and Theodora, she goes by Theo which I liked as well. Theodora Faye is really pretty and unexpected.

    Thanks everyone for voting and your thoughts. Theodora Faye is definitely a front runner for me at the moment and I'll keep Frances Leni on the list too. I have a few other names that I like with only using the middle name as a family name so I'm sure I'll be back again asking more questions. Thanks again for your help! :smile:

    I love Frances Leni (prob nn Franny) or Helena or Lenora Frances nn Leni (bc Eleanor and Elsie too close as others have said). Good luck!
