About Eleanor of Aquitaine (1123 - 1204)... Her real (= French) name was Alienor. It comes from "my God is my light" in Hebrew. I suppose it comes from her Jewish ancestors (her family converted to Christianism around 950), or of her father's going to crusade lol
Since the oldest Alienor/Elinor I've discovered in the family tree died in 995, I would say the Jewish ancestors.
