Mark, Dominic, and Lorelei Jane.
You have strong boy names, I would continue with the correct spellings for strong girl names. Eleanor gets second.

Eloise/a Jane or Delilah Jane would be nice, as well.

Arabella is unique and original. Eleanor reminds me of a grandma name personally. Lorelai is second for me, and I like Jane spelled correctly as mentioned above. It is a classy name spelled just as intended. GL!

Arabella or Eliza! Eleanor is nice, too, but I can’t picture it on a small child.

I really strongly dislike Lorelai.

the reason behind the spelling of Jayne is that this is the spelling of my mother-in-law’s name. I’d prefer Jane, but my husband really wants it spelled like his mother’s name. Our sons names are after the other three parents so we want our girl to be after his mom. Just thought I’d let you all know that!

Eleanor would most likely be called Ellie or Nora when she’s little.

I think it’s still honoring, even if you change the spelling. It’s just your preference. It wasn’t HER idea to be named Jayne, I’m sure at some point she wished it were spelled the original way, too. Talk to her about it.

I considered Eleanor "Ella" fo my daughter but I just couldn’t get over the "old-lady" feel. However, it’s the only name I like with the nn Ella/Ellie. As I said above (2), Lorelei Jane, GMV.

Eliza Jayne or Eleanor Jayne would be my pick.

I disagree with pp about the Jane/Jayne issue. If you’re naming your daughter after someone, I think it’s only right to retain the spelling. And there’s nothing wrong with Jayne as opposed to Jane.

I think it’s fine to change the spelling, if you prefer the original. I named my son Bennett after my grandfather, Benjamin. I’m also planning on naming my other son Henry or Harrison after a family member named Harry. It’s all about preference. People use variants all the time.

I love the name Lorelai Jayne...Eleanor is ok but sounds kind of dated. Arabella would be my 2nd choice
GL!!

All of these people talking about how old or dated Eleanor sounds are cracking me up....it’s on its way to becoming very popular again. I say use it now and be ahead of the trend!! It’s a classic with great nickname options and one I would absolutely use if my last name wasnt 3 syllables and ends in -ner.

Eleanor Jane!!

Eleanor is the best by far. I like the spelling of the middle name Jane as opposed to Jayne, though.
