    An Elvis inspired girls name

    I was talking with my pregnant friend about our mutual love of Mr. Presley, and she asked if I could think of any Elvis inspired names for her baby girl. And you know what? As much as I love names and I love Elvis, I've got nothing! All i could come up with is Memphis. She wasn't keen on Presley as a name (neither am I). Any ideas?

    I think that Graceland, Memphis or Tennessee would make great middles. I think Ellis could work, or Elle, especially Elle V____, like Elle Vivian or Elle Veronica.

    Also, the girl in Blue Hawaii was named Maile & the girl in Viva Las Vegas was Rusty. Looking to favorite movies or songs or albums could be helpful if you don't want to just riff off of the name Elvis.

    Priscilla would be a cool middle & Lisa-Marie could be a nice double middle.

    I actually know a little girl called Graceland ''Gracie''.
    I didn't even immediately 'get' it either, so it's not incredibly obvious... it took me ages to realise why it kind of felt a bit vintage-glam, and why I sort of liked it.
