Elinor is named after her Grandmother Eleanor
Dave is one of 3 boys and his Dad has all brothers. Ellie is the first girl after a long line of boys. I loved the name Eleanor and with it being Dave's moms name we thought it would be special if we named her after her grandmom.
My Moms middle name is Marie which we liked but we wanted something a little different. After trying to come up with a middle name forever we found Meira, a variant of Marie.
