Name Meaning

Originally a variant of Helen , although now no longer associated with that name. Initial H- tended to be added and dropped rather capriciously, leading to many doublets ( compare for example Esther and Hester ). It is also sometimes used as a short form of Eleanor , to which, however, it is unrelated.
