    Elsie is adorable. But I am not a fan of nicknamish names as stand-alone names. Elsie makes a darling nickname for Elisabeth or Eloisa.

    I really like Elsie as a nn, but as a given name, not as much. Also, it might not age well. Imagine a 50 yr old lawyer named Elsie. Maybe you could do it as the middle with one for your middles as the first? Rose or Josephine would work well, and you could still call her Elsie. Out of your other list I love Clara.

    I'm due with a little girl in October that my husband and I are naming Ellsie Joe. We're also using the Scottish meanings for both names, Ellsie meaning 'Noble', and Joe meaning 'Sweetheart.' I love Ellsie, and know I would be so angry with myself if I named her something else that I just settled for because it sounded nicknamey. Go with what you love.

    I confess I am also in love with the name Elsie! It's so sweet and simple, but it has that vintage nickname style that's really popular.

    My favorite full name for nickname Elsie is Elsa. I think it's lovely and fits right in with your other favorites (Clara, Juliette, etc). Elsa Juliette is a pretty combo.
