Why are some names that are similar to, or in the same theme or feeling as Eleanor? It's my friend's current fav but she's looking for other inspiration. Thanks!

El- names I like:
Elspeth - A bit more old-fashioned and a little more of a statement than the related Elizabeth.
Other E- names that sound like they go with classic Eleanor:
Emily - very popular but I like it.
Esme, and Esmeralda
Evangeline, though it's too religious for me it's very pretty.
Enid - for the brave.
Similar al- names
Other names altogether that just have a similar classic feel/sound to me and "fit" with Eleanor
Leora and Leona
Valeria and Veronica

Eleanor is a beautiful, classic name. Tell your friend I said so
