I saw this a few weeks ago an was pretty horrified myself. Eleanor
is my name so I'm perhaps a little protective -I even get annoyed by the whole "related to the Greek for 'light'" thing.
I had no idea whether Eyla-Nor Rob
was Yoruban or not but the idea that it is a realiable etymology for the name Eleanor
seemed rediculous to me. Especially as the name has been prominent in Europe (in all it's varient spellings) since the 12th century when Eleanor
of Aquitaine's children/grandchildren married into all the major European royal and aristocratic families, leading to her many namesakes.
Thank-you for removing it.
