Holy mother of EPICNESS!!
The first known bearer of the name was Eleanor of Aquitaine. She was named after her mother, Aénor de Châtellerault, and called Aliénor, (from Alia-Aénor), which means other-Aénor in Occitan). It became “Eléanor” in the northern Langue d’oïl and in English. Therefore the meaning of the name is sometimes given as “The Other.” Aénor is a Provençal name whose meaning is not surely known, maybe coming from Latin lenire (“to heal”). In English the name is sometimes connected to Elena, Ellen or Elaine (Helen, Helene) as well. It could be connected to the Greek eleos (“compassion”) as well. There is however an earlier Eleanor on record. Eleanor of Normandy, William the Conqueror’s aunt, lived a century earlier than Eleanor of Aquitaine. The story of her might be apocryphal.
Cognates of the name in different languages include Leonor (Portuguese pronunciation: [le.o.ˈnoɾ])(Spanish and Portuguese), Eléonore (French), and Eleonora (Italian). The similar Hebrew name Elior means “God is light”. The similar-sounding Arabic Allahu Nuri also means “God is my light”; the modern version is Nurullah (Noorullah) (“light of God”).
Its been a long time since I have blogged about marketing or sales. Its been a long time since I have blogged actually. But something happened today which must be shared.Most of you by now know that I am currently working with HCL Comnet as an Account Manager in the India Sales division. Being practically 'in training' for the past month and half, my eyes and ears are beginning to get attuned towards anything sales. Being a resident of Thane as I have often mentioned in my earlier posts, any place else in Mumbai is far away. Today I chose to come back home by train having had enough of traffic on the road.
Yes, I know I have not really taken a LOT of pictures. But WTH!
