Could [name_f]Leah[/name_f] (lee-ah) be a nickname for [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]?
I’m thinking of changing my nickname.

[name_f]Ellie[/name_f]. Xx

Why not? [name_f]Lea[/name_f] definitely could and [name_f]Leah[/name_f] would make the pronunciation easier for others

Sure. I would probably spell it [name_f]Lea[/name_f] just because the letters are there, but it’s totally up to you.

I think [name_f]Lea[/name_f] would definitely work as a nn for [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]. I do like it better without the H, just for the sleeker feel, but if the softness of the H is what you like, go for it :slight_smile:

Other nn ideas for [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]: [name_f]Elle[/name_f] / [name_f]Ella[/name_f] / [name_f]Ellen[/name_f], [name_f]Nell[/name_f], [name_f]Lena[/name_f], [name_f]Nora[/name_f], and [name_f]Nola[/name_f].
