    Ellie?

    I'm loving the name Ellie recently; no full name, just Ellie. I mentioned it to SO and he likes it too, so yay. We've added Ellie-Mae Grace to our list as of now, and I just wanted some opinions on the name itself, and our combo. Feel free to be honest, I'm looking for what you truly think of it. Also, how do you think it will fit in in a classroom? I live in England if that changes things.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm personally not a fan of nicknames as given names, I would much prefer to see Eleanor, Elena, Ella etc

    But Ellie-Mae would have no trouble fitting in to a UK classroom - in 2012 Ellie was the 35th most popular name, Ella was very popular at #18, and even Ellie-Mae ranked at #264 (#244 for Ellie-May spelling). I'm not sure on the 2013 stats but I imagine they're similar.

    I love Ellie, but personally prefer it as a nn. Yet even without a full name I think she will fit in just fine in a classroom, especially in England since you guys seem to like nicknames as full names. Ellie-Mae Grace is very sweet and flows well, but maybe a bit boring and expected. I would personally prefer something like Ellie-Joy Marie or Ellie-Joy Violet. Joy flows just as well with Ellie as Mae does, but is a little fresher imo.

    Thanks for your opinions SO suggested Ellie May Grace, but I prefer the spelling Mae, and I'd rather have the hyphen there. I'm currently loving Ellie Primrose, but he doesn't like it as much. Any thoughts on that?

    I like Ellie Primrose much more than Ellie-Mae since I'm not a fan of hyphenated names. But also because Mae has been overdone on my opinion, Primrose is fresher and just as beautiful.
    Ellie is adorable on it's own, even without a longer name.
    Good Luck!
