Thread: Elke/Elka vs Elodie?
June 26th, 2013 01:00 PM #11
@ ottilie that is interesting, kind of what I suspected was happening in the UK.
@ mandapantalones, I don't watch The Hills but I know the show. It seems even more unusual that someone of that age group would be called Elodie in the US.Mother to two lovely kiddos, Mila Arden and Cato Bennett
Currently dreaming of...
Atlas, Callahan, Caius, Ezra, Bram, Atticus, Aspen, Sylvan, Constantine, Perrin & Pascoe
Lyra, Elodie, Elowen, Isis, Artemis, Sylvia, Vesper, Anouk, Willa, Cassia, Elka & Sage

Elodie is adorable, but Elke/Elka is delicious! I see Elka (I prefer this spelling myself so as not to cause pronunciation confusion, I prefer el-KA to el-KEY, and I've read different things about how to pronounce Elke) aging much better than Elodie. Elodie is sweet chubby cheeks and happy giggles to me. I do really like the name, but I find Elka leaps and bounds more interesting.
From your sig, I think Delphine would make a great middle.

Both Elodie and Elka are stunning, but Elka is much more interesting.
Not only that, but Elka is a name that will actually age with her-- not against her-- unlike Elodie which starts to lose its charm after the 30 year mark.
I would definitely use Elka over Elodie, and adore it paired with Mila.
As for MNs...
What about Delphine? It's listed in your signature and works splendidly with Elka. Other combos you might consider...
