According to the appendix on names in Chambers' dictionary, Nell can also be a diminutive of Ellen or Eleanor. Both of these are derived from Helen but widely used as separate names. I used to have an aunt called Eleanor but it never crossed my mind until today that her name was a version of Helen.
