Helen e Eleonora

Post by helenoellen »

Ciao, siamo due studentesse svedese. Abbiamo 17 anni. Impariamo italiano nella scuola. :)
Nella nostra tempo libero guardiamo i filmi e Eleonora va a cavallo e Helen suonare chitarra.
Pia è la nostra insegnante. Insegna molto bene.
In maggio andiamo a Firenze con il classe italiano e Pia.
È meraviglioso e divertente.

Arrivederci,

Helen e Eleonora

Benvenute Helen ed Eleonora

Helen --Your name in Italian is Elena

The funny thing is that both your names are similar and the Italian name Elena can be used for both. Eleonora is also a variation of Ellen

My name is Eleonora too :)

Actually, in Italian it's a name itself and it doesn't have any connection with Elena. Or maybe I don't get you Roby

Yes, I know that both names are names by themselves. However, there are variations of names that derive from a name... For example, Roberta derives from Robert; and there are variations of other names that fit in under this name. Do you understand now?

[Scusa se ho modificato il mio post]

Yes I know ;) but I mean, they don't share the same origin. Elena is clearly a greek name, while Eleonora is probably northern european. Yeah, they seem to have the same greek root but I don't think it's correct.

It's true that both can be shortened in "Eli", "Ele" etc. I personally use the nickname Ella :)

Elena is a cognate of Helen, and Ellen

Eleanor is also one of them, but it isn't listed here on this link

Se hai voglia di chiudere gli occhi

Thanks! Now we've learnt lots about our names, too. that's good. :D
Didn't really know how to write all this in Italian, since we've only studied the langauge for a year and a half... but if someone wants to have a conversation in Italian with us, we would be very happy (and our teacher would we pleased, too). :)

Greetings from Sweden // Helen and Eleonora
