    Opinions on the name Elic?

    I usually am attracted to classic names. My daugher's name is Julia and we have a boy on the way. I like Henry and Liam along with a few other names along that vein. My husband really likes Elic. His grandmother called his father (named Alexander) Elic. I can't even find this name on nameberry and I'm afraid it's a name we might need to explain/repeat a lot. Perhaps I'm too rigid in my name preferences. What are people's thoughts when they here this name?

    My honest opinion is I think it would be a name misheard as Eric or Alec quite a bit, which would likely require a lot of repeating on your part.

    Unfortunately, this was my exact reaction to this name. I'm sorry! I like the back story and where you're going with it, but ultimately I believe it would be a mess. Alexander is a GREAT classic name. Alex and Alec could both be good compromises. Even Anders or Anderson could be a great way to honor that relative. My honest opinion would be to stay away from Elic and use something similar (Alec) or more traditional (Alexander, Anderson,) to honor that grandfather.
