Couldn't convince my hubby to go for it though.
I'd love to meet a little Willa!

My youngest girl is named Elsbeth - the German form of the name rather than Elspeth - the Scottish form.
Her nickname is Betts or Betsy.
While we get a lot of mispronounciations and blank...

Having a spunky/fun nickname and a more elegant full name was a 'must-have' when naming my kids!
We ended up with:
Annika - Annie
Elsbeth - Betsy
Rosemarie - Rosie

Elsbeth (Betts/Betsy) :)
Rebecca/Rebekah (Reba or Becca). I've always had a soft spot for Rebekah.
Susannah (Susie or Zanna). Classic, feminine, lovely, but underused.
Magnolia (Maggie!) Strong vintage southern name...
Love the names of your girls!
And, I think Eloise fits much better with the pair than Aurelie.
More of an unusual funky type vibe.
(Also, for me, Aurelie reminds me of Sleeping Beauty too much...
FWIW, my oldest daughter is named Annika (pronounced as is your daughter's) and I just had my second girl.
Our leading names were -
with Ottilie, Freya, Ingrid,...
I admit to being completely biased (my eldest daughter is named Annika), but I love the name Annika! It's different, but not wacky. While very rarely she'll be called 'An-neek-a', usually the name...
Love many of the names on your list and thought about several of them for my daughter whom I ended up naming Elsbeth.
You may also like (based on my likes as we may have similar taste!)
I named my 4 month old Elsbeth! :)
I admit, I actually like the spelling Elspeth better.
BUT, my husband and I are German/Northern European in heritage, so we felt that Elsbeth reflected our...
I've always liked -
Rosemary/Rosemarie - Romy, Remy
Victoria - Vicka
Felicity - Flicka
Elsbeth - Ebby, Bettes/Bets. (My daughter's name!). :)

We ended up naming our girl born in February Elsbeth.
Other names on our list were:
I loved Winifred, Gretchen, Elsa, and Ingrid but I...

I have a Theodore (Theo) and an Elsbeth (Betsy).
They make a neat set.
Solid names with fun nicknames.
I know it is so hard choosing a name!

Baby Girl Lettucehead has made her arrival!
Born 2/26/14 at 1522.
Likely nickname Betsy.
Brothers = Maxwell Murphy (Max), Theodore Neal (Theo).

I appreciate the feedback so much!
I actually agree that I like Elspeth better than Elsbeth (although I like Elsbeth too!) - it's just that DH and I are very German in ancestry and not Scottish...
It was a lead contender for my daughter, but it doesn't work with my last name very well.
Elsa Catherine is great!

I've always thought Jane is an underused classic.
It would sound particularly good with a long last name.
Margaret would be my 2nd choice, but I'd choose a different nickname than Maisie.

I'd love some final opinions on our top three names for Baby Girl.
We're 39 weeks and contracting - kiddo will likely be here tomorrow!
Of note, our other daughter is named Annika (nn Annie). ...

Claudia and Avia hands down!
Not a fan of the others, I'm afraid.

I think Lucia is lovely, but you are likely going to have LOTS of pronunciation issues (particularly with the pronunciation you prefer.)
Personally, I love Mia and Ivy - feminine but crisp. ...

Any more input about the validity of Elsbeth as an independent name?
Would Elsbeth just always be seen as a mispronounced/spelled Elizabeth?
January 3rd, 2014, 11:01 AM
In fact, now I'm confused...
Didn't you just write a blog post on 12/30 called 'Unique Baby Names' that includes Elsbeth as a name?

Ah! Feedback! Love it! Thank you, all!
Feedback becomes so valuable because (among another thousand reasons) it helps one figure out what could be seen as an issue by a less-intimately involved...
