      Nell is short for Helen, so Nellie for Ellen sounds possible to me, Patti.

              I think that there are a few pet/nick-names created by inverting the name, or re-ordering it.

              Ellen / Eleanor / Helen = Nellie (but that can also be an abbreviation of Petronella, as I recall, suddenly!)

              Nan = Ann
