[Facts] Pronunciation of Aliénor?
I'm curious about the pronunciation of Aliénor -- the the original name from which the modern name Eleanor developed, and the real name of Eleanor of Aquitaine.Aliénor looks so pretty but I'd love to make sure I am saying it correctly!

Open "a" as in "cat", lee, narrow eh (bet), nor, stress on th last syllable if you want to pronounce it the French way.
