This name is used in Israel with the meaning "My God Is The Light". Eli as 'My God' and Nor as a variant of the word Or which means 'Light'.

It is a really gorgeous name. I find there is a clear difference between Elinor and Eleanor. I pronounce Elinor as 'E-lin-or' and Eleanor as 'E-len-er'. Of the two of them, I prefer Elinor. It sounds so posh when I hear people say it!

This is an ugly variant of Eleanor. Eleanor is so much classier and professional.

Ugly spelling. Eleanor all the way!

Eleanor looks too old-fashioned. Elinor is much much better.

I don't like this or Eleanor, I just fancy the pet form "Nell".

What an ABSOLUTE disgrace to a classic. Spell it Eleanor or just simply don't use it. Elinor looks both dyslexic and illiterate. As though someone was unsure of how to spell it and just guessed at it.
