    Eloise

    Ever since I was little, I've known this to be el-oy-s, and everyone I've known to say this name, has said it that way. Now that I've joined Nameberry, I'm seeing things about it being said as el-oo-eez. (Louise with an Eh sound out front). Which one's the right way?

    I say El-oo-eez. Its one of my favourite names as its almost like a smoosh of my sisters middle name Louise and my mums first name Elspeth.

    El-oo-eez. You say it like a "noise" with an "elle" sound instead of the "N"?
