I've fallen for the name Elke as an option for our soon to be here baby. From my research, I understand that it's typically pronounced El-kah, but many also go for El-key, as it reads. I'm leaning towards El-kah, I think it wears better into adulthood.
I'm actually after advice/suggestions on two things. Firstly, do any of you Berries have a brainwave for a suitable middle name. I'd like something a little more popular as a middle name, and am leaning towards one syllable, something like Elke Rose or Elke Lou (happy to compromise for the right name), both May/Mae and Jane are out due to close relatives use.
Secondly, I've read that the name actually has a few different origins, both Dutch but also Hebrew; I'm interested to see what the correct way to pronounce it in the hebrew is, particularly as our first sons name is a Hebrew name.
