Our adoptive daugter is Ellie...
So we have been looking for an "official" name that Ellie can be a nickname for. I think we really like Elia. I pronounce it "El-ie-a"...the "ie" is a long "I" sound. Pronounced like "Elijah" but without the "J". What do you think? Is that confusing? Will she be explaining the pronunciation all the time?
While I am not religious the meaning of the name is "God has answered" which I think is awesome since she is our foster daughter and this has been a very long road.
Just want some feedback though on what everyone thinks :) Thank you!!
Elia Sophia Kate would be her full name....
Sophia is her middle name given to her by her birth mother
Kate is after me her adoptive mom
