I read this long ago and googled to make sure I remembered it correctly:

"The name probably originates as that of Eleanor of Aquitaine (1120s–-1204). She was the daughter of Aénor de Châtellerault, and it has been suggested that having been baptized Aenor after her mother, she was called alia Aenor, i.e. "the other Aenor" in childhood and would have kept that name in adult life; the name Aénor itself appears to be a Latinization of a Germanic name of uncertain form." 

I also remember her step mother was named "Danberouse"  not sure of the spelling but it meant Dangerous in Languidoc whis what was spoken in the Aquitane back then

Elinor was my mother's name.  Her father was a northern yankee from upstate New York and her mom was of French decent from Beauford, SC....They married in 1909 and Elinor was born in 1914.  Don't know why they chose that spelling.
