Origin of eleanor

The first known bearer was Eleanor of Aquitaine (1122–1204), Provençal Aliénor, possibly from Germanic or Latin ali(a) "other" and her mother's name Aenor. It's meaning thereby said to be 'the other Aenor'. Arabic origin has also been suggested. Eleanor has often been erratically interpreted as a variant of Helen.
