    Eliot on a girl is a major guilty pleasure for me but I could never use it in real life. It seems to much like the trendy thing to do! If you truly love it and your daughter feels like an Eliot then I say go for it, but don't be surprised if you and she both face a lifetime of correcting people that she is in fact a girl....

    This one has me on the fence. I LOVE Elliot for a boy (It was our middle name choice, had this baby been a boy)... at the same time, I do think it is "cute" and I love the nn Ellie.

    I agree with renrose, if you want Elliot for a girl, use the french version, Eliette. It's a legitimate french diminuitive of 'El' names and is a GIRLS name.

    I think it would diminish some of the negativity that you've been receiving and it pretty much sounds the same. Then if somebody tells you it's a boys name you can set them straight

    Personally I'm not a big fan of boys names on girls but I can't complain about Eliette

    I love it on a boy, but not on a girl. I also prefer the spelling Elliott.

    I could see how you could like this for a girl. I think it is all boy but I understand. I do prefer Elliot or Elliott as the spelling. GL
