    Thanks for all the feedback! The pronunciation is quite intuitive in Dutch I think, I don’t expect any real issues there. However, I was wondering if it looks like a typical smush name, I would not be so keen on that.
    I would love the nickname Eli (ay-lee) I tried that one at a starbucks the other day, they wrote it down as Ely

    Oh, I love it, and much prefer the Danish pronunciation as opposed to how I would have pronounced it otherwise. Siblings Elianthe and Roslinde (from your signature) would just be incredible; speaking of which, I have just now also fallen in love with Elva, Mirre and Mariken - am popping off to look them up on behindthename.com now... Good luck!
