Lovely, classic, elegant.

Allalonenow Sat 05-Nov-16 22:15:07

Absolutely beautiful.

Gorgeous name.

I have a slight preference for the spelling Elinor, but great choice either way.

Pipilangstrumpf Sat 05-Nov-16 22:16:05

Nice but Ellie is overused imo.

CheshireSplat Sat 05-Nov-16 22:16:13

Lovely. But then DD1's name sounds similar so I am biased.

MrsNuckyThompson Sat 05-Nov-16 22:17:06

Love it and love Ellie.

I think it's a beautiful name!

I have one grin

It's nice but every other baby girl is currently called Eleanor or Ellie.

The others are called Amelia.

Lovely name. Not Ellie or Ella though.

Floggingmolly Sat 05-Nov-16 22:28:02

Love it.

Lovely name. And so many ways you/she could go by. Lennie would be my choice.

Love it 😁

llangennith Sat 05-Nov-16 22:48:37

One of my favourite names.

Nellie/Nell is a nice nn for Eleanor, or El. Personally I think it's an excellent choice. wink it's a classic, beautiful name imho!

Sophronia Sat 05-Nov-16 23:02:54

It's lovely

Sorry I really find it clunky. Love Nell though.

JunebabyT Sun 06-Nov-16 00:27:03

Very nice classic name. Would consider it if I didn't have a colleague by the name!

I know a lovely one and I think she always just goes by Eleanor, not Ellie etc. smile

Sunnydawn Sun 06-Nov-16 00:30:44

Love it.

GiddyOnZackHunt Sun 06-Nov-16 00:44:58

I've liked it since I met one 41 years ago smile

Chinlo Sun 06-Nov-16 00:47:09

I'm a fan

Bananice Sun 06-Nov-16 01:07:08

I have one so love it smile. We call her Nell most of the time
