X Eleanor Hatfield

X Eleanor Hatfield

Eleanor X Hatfield

 

my original idea was wilder but that is a bad combo with eleanor.. 

what does eleanor abbreviate to? seems like it abbreviates poorly?

 

maybe a short and snappy name to accompany?

 

help!

girls name!

Anastasie Anastisia something that can abbreviate to short and sweet english name for her but i feel like combining Eleanor Anastasie Hatfield is quite too big the mouthful..,

more androgynous style names are prefered, really! 

ÆLIA: dana   

Elea??

Eleanor Anastasia is very pretty, but if you find it to be too long, how about Nora Anastasia?

I love Elea.  I would pronounce it like 'IHL-ee-ah' though, whereas some people might say 'EL-ee' or 'EL-ee-ah'.

Elea Anastasia would be very pretty.

If you're looking for androgenous names, you could go to 'Lea' or 'Leigh'.  They obviously sound the same as 'Lee' but are percieved as more feminine variants (here in Australia, at least).

This list (remove spaces): http:// www. behindthename. com/names/gender/unisex/usage/english has a load of unisex English names that you could have a look at and see what is appealing to you.  It also includes names such as Skylar, Storm, Wisdom, Justice, and Haven which might work as a gender-neutral common-noun-as-name substitute for Wild/Wilder.

I don't really understand what you are asking, but if when you say "abbreviate," you mean nicknames, then the traditional nickname for Eleanor is Nell/Nellie/Nelly.  Other nicknames are Elle/Ellie/Ella. Nora, Lenore, Leni/Lennie.

I would strongly advise against Wild as a first name, especially for a girl.  "Wild" is sometimes used to mean promiscuous.

If you want something short/sweet & like Eleanor, I think you might be on to something with the Elle.  Nora also works nicely as a stand alone name.

Dana is nice, but will likely strike a lot of people as pretty dated.  It's also not really unisex anymore, most people will consider it a girl's name.

Based on Elle/Eleanor & Dana, I'll suggest a variety of names.  Some lean unisex while others are all-girl.  Darcy, Shea, Lane/Laney/Delaney, Luna, Harper, Lena, Lora, Dell.  Let us know if any of these interest you.  The better we understand what you are looking for, the better our suggestions will get.

What is it that you like about Wilder & Wild?  Are you wanting something that comes across as adventurous?  Or perhaps you're looking for an uncommon nature inspired name?  For adventurous but less teasworthy, I'll suggest Indy/Indiana, Indigo, Scout, Vida, Electra, Bliss.  For something nature inspired, perhaps Azalea, Juniper, Echo, Aspen, Cedar, Clover, Lotus, Dove.

Wow, this is a tough one to figure out!  I agree with the previous poster that Wild/Wilder is not a good connotation for a girl.  You may want to consider other "word" names that may evoke an "all good things are wild and free" feeling, unless its a family name.  Wilder may work better for a boy because it is less stigmatized.  

Some names that are "wild and free":  Phoenix, Liberty, Azure, Calypso, Fable, Jubilee, Lark, River, Tennessee, or Scout.  

I find Eleanor very easy to nickname.  Here are some: Ellie, Ella, Elle, Nell, Nora, and Lena.

You may also consider alternate forms of Eleanor, like Lenore or Leonora, for the cute nickname Leo.  

Good luck with your little conundrum!

I had the name Alice Eleanor on my list for a while.  I like that Eleanor can shorten to Ella, Norie, Nora, Lena, El
