Origin & Meaning
The meaning of Eleanor is "light".
Eleanor of Aquitaine (Aliénor d’Aquitaine, 1122 - 1204) inherited her father's domain when she succeeded him as suo jure Duchess of Aquitaine and Countess of Poitiers at the age of fifteen. She was Queen to two kings, King Louis VII of France and King Henry II of England, and the mother of Richard the Lionheart and King John.
Unusual for the time she actively participated in affairs of state during the reigns of both of her husbands and her two sons which became Kings. She even accompanied her husband King Louis VII on the Second Crusade (1147 - 1149).
By virtue of her own wealth and her marriages to both King Louis VII of France and King Henry II of England, Eleanor of Aquitaine was one of the wealthiest and most powerful women in Western Europe during the Middle Ages.

The popularity of hyphenated names is a unique feature of French given names. For example Paul-Henri or Anne-Marie. A hyphenated name is considered a single unit first name, not separate first and middle names. Hyphenated names may be of the same or different genders. The first part of the name will always indicate the holder's gender.
Masculine names may be made feminine with the addition of -e, -ette, or -ine as suffixes.
