    Felicity vs Elisabeth

    Felicity beat Penelope, so now I'd like to see how it compares to our other top favorite, Elisabeth (or Elizabeth, we haven't decided). Again, siblings are Alexander (Xander), Madelyn (Maddie), and Genevieve (she hasn't chosen a nickname yet, though calls herself GV at 20 months old). Elisabeth would likely be Bess, or Elizabeth would be Eliza.

    Oops! Spelled it with a z in the poll! Maybe that is my preferred spelling.

    Definitely Felicity! Felicity Elizabeth could be a nice combo though if you aren't set on a middle name.

    Felicity! It's so much more interesting, and I adore the meaning. Elisabeth/Elizabeth just feels very... plain to me. It would take a really unusual middle name to get me excited about it.

    This is a tough one for me because I do like Felicity, but I'm going with Elisabeth. I know it's popular and common, and dare I say it, maybe a little boring, but I absolutely love it. It's a classic, feminine, strong gorgeous name.

    I love both Felicity and Elisabeth! If you prefer the Elizabeth spelling, then I definitely prefer Felicity--I just don't care for the "Z" at all. But if it's between Felicity and Elisabeth, I actually think I prefer Elisabeth--I just like Felicity more as a MN. Is the MN still Jane? If so, I would definitely say Felicity--Felicity Jane is interesting, sweet, and vintage--Elisabeth Jane, while lovely, is almost too classic, and a bit boring. I think Elisabeth Felicity would be lovely, though, or something like Elisabeth Charlotte...
