    I agree with this. Elyot is ridiculous! Adding random Y's to names doesn't make them more feminine, it just makes them misspelled.

    I believe Elliot is the most common spelling when used as a girl's name. I would stick to that. I wouldn't cut out an "L", the double "L"s make it seem more similar to Ellie/Ella, which makes it seem slightly more feminine.

    I second this.

    I wouldn't name a girl Elliott. But if you must, I would use the traditional spelling (Elliott or Elliot) - stay away from the trendy "y" - which just makes a classic name look tacky.

    I would point out that an ongoing theme for Elliot Reid on scrubs was that she was always trying to please her father - who (I believe) wished that she had been a boy.

    I was going to say, what about adding an e at e end of Eliott. Eliette, even better! But I don't mind Eliotte better than any of the y spellings....
