  1. Our baby girl’s name was inspired by Jane Austen’s character Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility.
    We loved the European spelling of the name as well.

  2. I named my baby after Elinor Dashwood in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. I like that it is old fashioned yet gaining in popularity. It’s nice to have a name that isn’t incredibly common.
