Eleanor vs. Ella

I am trying to decide between these two names. Sibling would be Cora. Would CORa and EleaNOR be too similar? Should I stick with Ella for this reason? Thanks.

I believe that Eleanor is a beautiful name! Eleanor and Cora really don’t sound too similar, and the ’or’ shouldn’t stop you from using the name. I don’t think you should use Ella... Good luck and God Bless!

I think Cora and Eleanor sound really nice together. They are both classic older names. Very nice indeed!

I know a little girl named Eleanor and they call her Ella for short.

i think corA and ellA sound more similar than CORa and eleaNOR but ella is still my choice. the last poster’s suggestion of using ella as the nn is a great idea if you can’t decide between the 2.

I like the name Eleanor better than the nickname Ella, but if you want, you can name her Eleanor and call her Ella. That way, she has a real name to fall back on.

Ella is a nickname, a cute one, but not a REAL name.
