    Need help choosing an E name

    We're trying to narrow down some girl E names for our new little one who's due in a few months. The rest of us have E names, so it's important that this little one follows suit. Our son's name is Everett. We really like old fashioned names that can have a cute nickname, but not a too common nickname like Ellie either. Which name do you prefer and why? Any other ideas?

    Etta (Ettie)
    Eloise (Lulu)
    Elinor (Lina)
    Edith (Edie)
    Esmeralda (Essie, Esme)
    Mama to Everett Curtis (11/2010) and Ernest Henry (3/2014)

    My personal favorites and the ones I feel go well with Everett are Eleanor (much prefer this spelling) and Eloise.

    Piers Lachlan Wilder | Henry Oliver Birch | Jack Everett Moss | Gray Dashiell Fox
    Sophie Jane Magnolia | Eloise Margaret Birdie | Anneline Elizabeth Fable | Charlotte Evelyn Rose

    I love the name Everett! Definitely one of my top for boys.

    Etta (Ettie) - I don't like this one, reminds me of an old person.

    Eloise (Lulu) - Seems to be climbing popularity, if that matters to you.

    Elinor (Lina) - I love the nickname Lina

    Edith (Edie) - Also old.

    Esmeralda (Essie, Esme) - I like this one although it is long. Why not name her Esme right off the bat? I like Esme a lot!

    I apologize if I repost on the Baby Name Games board. If I do, it means someone overwrote my post. Please refresh before posting!

    I love Etta and Eleanor (with this spelling only).
    Good luck!

    Eloise gets my vote. It sounds great with Everett and, like Everett, bridges the gap between old-fashioned and modern.
