Opinions on Elsie?
I have recently fallen in love with the name Elsie, but am not sure if it could stand alone as a first name. I haven't found any names so far that I love that I could use Elsie as a nickname for, but I am open to suggestions.
Other girl names that I love are Clara, Miriam, Evangeline, and Juliette. Which of these are your favorites, and does Elsie work well with any of these?
Also, please post some middle name suggestions and boy names that go with Elsie. Girl middles that have family significance are Marie, Jane, Rose, and Josephine. Boys middles with significance are Richard and Everett.
I am not expecting, just name planning.
Thanks for all the help! Can't wait to see everyone's replies!
My friends just had a little girl named Elsie, I think it's a fabulous name :) From your list of middles I like Elsie Josephine the best.
I like Elsie as a nn, not a standalone name. Possible full names are Elspeth, Elise and Eloise.
I love your names! They're beautifully classic. Try
I love Elsie and think it could work fine as a standalone!
I love Elsie and think it is just fine on it's own!
I don't like Elsie as a stand-alone name. I recently met a little baby Elsie and had to stop myself from asking her parents what her name was short for. I think you should always have a formal name on a birth certificate, even if you call her Elsie in everyday life. Options for first names...
Or almost any name beginning with El...
I like Elsie as a stand alone name but I do think it's much cutter (and better) as a nickname.
Wow. Elsie Josephine is my great grandmothers name!
