I think this is a lovely name. It has strength, but also elegance, is refined and sophisticated, and I usually like long, elegant girl names. It is also rather unique to me, I don't know anyone with this name, but at the same time it has a classic, and classy, feel. I like Eleanor too though.

Eleonora is pretty, but my favorite spelling is Eleanora, because it looks like it would be easier to pronounce depending on where you live. Plus, there's a bunch of cute nicknames like Ellie, Nora, or Nell.

It's an elegant name, but it's a bit of a mouthful. However, there's always the nickname Nora.

Quite pretty, it's become something like "Isabella" in the sense that it's cliche and affected, any European, classic-sounding, palatable name that authors give their teen romance protagonists. Like a buzzword. I much prefer Eleanor, because it maintains the melody but without the pretense.
