Name Meaning

From an Old French respelling of the Old Provençal name Alienor. This has sometimes been taken as a derivative of Helen , but it is more probably of Germanic derivation (the first element being ali ‘other, foreign’ the second is obscure). The name was introduced to England by Eleanor of Aquitaine ( 1122–1204 ), who came from Aquitaine in south-west France to be the wife of King Henry II . It was also borne by Eleanor of Provence, the wife of Henry III , and Eleanor of Castile, wife of Edward I .
