Amelia or Ellie?
My husband and I have our list narrowed down to 3 names and need opinions:
If Ellie Mae wasn't the name of a Clampet, that would be our name of choice.
Big sisters are Izzie Caroline and Isla Rose and our last name starts with Mur-
Thanks ahead of time for your help!!
I don't like Ellie as a full name by itself, but Clementine is my favourite of your middle name options.
I think you could get away with nicknaming an Amelia, Ellie. It's not terribly intuitive, but I think people would roll with it. I know an Amelia who goes by Millie, you might like that as an Ellie alternative?
I think Amelia is the prettier name, but Ellie Ruth is cute too :)
Ellie is too nicknamey for me. I like Amelia and think it would be great paired with Ruth.
I like Millie but my hubby doesn't :( Would Lia be a plausable nn for Amelia?

I like Ellie Ruth.
I prefer Amelia to Ellie. I am bored of the Ella/Elle/Ellie type names. Amelia Clementine would be incredibly lovely! Amelia Mae is sweet too though.
I don't care for Ellie as a full name but I think Ellie works way better with your other daughters' names and with a last name that starts with M. All the M's in Amelia Mae Mur- wouldn't sound so great. I love Amelia in general though! Maybe just a different middle name? Amelia Ruth Mur- perhaps?
Ellie Clementine - sounds great, however maybe a bit too matchy with big sister Izzie Caroline
Amelia Mae - I agree that it's M heavy with an M last name, although on its own it sounds lovely
Ellie Ruth - I do not care much for Ruth myself
I prefer Amelia Clementine, which has has a vintage cool feel - in case nn Millie is out, an alternative could be Amy
