    Can Elsie stand alone?

    Can Elsie stand alone as a given name or is it better as a NN? Is there anything else Elsie an be short for besides Elizabeth, Elise, and Eloise? Elise is my main contender right now but I do have a sweet spot for Eloise as well. Elizabeth isn't really being considered.

    I really like Elisabeth, but you could use a different form of it like Elspeth or Elisabetta.

    My name is Ellie (just Ellie), and I love my name. It just seems so much more fun than Eleanor or Elizabeth. I don't think people wouldn't hire an me just because I don't have a "formal name" to fall back on. Elsie is one of those nickname-names that I feel like shouldn't be tied down to full name, ever. Eloise and Elise are fine on their own, Elsie just doesn't work well as a nickname for the two names. You could use Elsa, but that sort of defeats the purpose of a nickname, Elsie is the same length and sounds almost exactly like Elsa. Elsie is wonderful on it's own. It's spunky, sweet, and vintage chic. If you can't bear to use it on it's own though, I'd just use Eloise or Elise on their own. They don't need nicknames.

    I know of three Elsies, all of whom have the name as a standalone.
