Additional information Eleanor:
Eleanor Roosevelt, first lady and political activist. Eleanor derives from the Provencale Alienore, of unknown meaning (popularly supposed to be alia Aenor 'other Aenor' after the first bearer. However there appears to be little evidence for this).
An Old French respelling of the Old Provencal name Alienor. Sometimes considered a derivative of Helen, the name is more likely of Germanic derivation. Introduced to England in the 12th century by Eleanor of Aquitaine, who came from France to wed King Henry II. Eleanor was also borne by the wives of Henry III and Edward I.
From the Old French form of the Occitan name Aliénor. It was first borne by the influential Eleanor of Aquitaine (12th century), who was the queen of Louis VII, the king of France, and later Henry II, the king of England. She was named Aenor after her mother, and was called by the Occitan phrase alia Aenor "the other AENOR" in order to distinguish her from her mother. The popularity of the name Eleanor in England during the Middle Ages was due to the fame of Eleanor of Aquitaine, as well as two queens of the following century: Eleanor of Provence, the wife of Henry III, and Eleanor of Castile, the wife of Edward I. More recently, it was borne by first lady Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), the wife of American president Franklin Roosevelt.

Eleanor's are the most amazing people you will ever meet. They are usually tall, consist of dark and distinctive features, a Gemini, quite self- concious. They will be the best friend you can ever dream of; sarcastic, funny jokes, keep all your secrets and help you in the toughest times. They seem to get extremely jealous and due to there lack of self esteem- they seem to be slow in every aspect of life but catch up in the end and prove them all wrong. You may think there are two types of eleanor's; ones are sluts and the others are quite shy and innocent. However the eleanor's that seem to be shy are just hiding there inner self of becoming a slut. A woman who has a distinctive personality, one who can laugh at anything, including themselves, who is especially kind and caring to others. She is a woman who above all else knows the value of having fun, and not taking life too seriously. She is a woman that you can trust and count on to brighten your day. She is a woman who can inexplicably make you feel really good just by being around her, and yet brings such great sadness when she is gone. She is a woman who I will never really get to know.
wow did you see that girl last night? she was too beautiful to be anything but an Eleanor..
Eleanor's are complex characters, they portray a charismatic, socially confident and often intimidating façade, however this is simply a front and just one of their many sides. Eleanor's are charismatic but not necessarily sociable, as they enjoy time alone, as though they are compatible with many other types, few people understand an Eleanor's complex nature. Eleanor's are loved and friends with all kinds of people but possess few close friends as they find it hard to trust people, as people have hurt them in the past (so also be aware of her physical space due to her trust issues) But once you are a close friend of an Eleanor you have pretty much won the lottery as theyre the most honest, sincere, loyal, caring, and supportive friends you could ever meet. Due to the loyalty generated by an Eleanor's friends it is highly advised NOT to piss her off, as if you do her wrong once, you will have a whole army of her loyal minions to deal with. Also she is prone to anger and aggression and though she controls this well, one should not push her buttons. Many fear her, many love her, many admire her and many wish to her know her. To be compatible with an Eleanor you must be loyal, understanding, patient, caring, loving, tolerant and persistent. Eleanor's rarely have a type appearance-wise but are incredibly influenced by ones personality; if you have the same odd humour and the thing that makes you a little bit different from the rest of the guys then you are a definite candidate.
guy: how do I get on that girl Eleanor? me: HAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH...there is just no way guy: what, why? me: dude, she's too complex for you, and she will never trust you and... guy: well I just wont give up me: mmm yeah good luck buddy.
1. A term used to describe someone who is caring, loving, funny, goofy, amazing, athletic, saucy, supportive, sassafras, attractive, and just overall mind-blowing. 2. A type of person that is extremely compatible with others, particularly people that fit the definition "Sam" (see Sam --disregard definition #1).
