    Which E Names?

    A while ago I posted a "This or That" thread, pitting some of my favorite names against each other that were too similar to use more than one. I have them all narrowed down now, except for the E names. I love them all, and can't decide which I am willing to part with. Ideally, I would like to narrow it down to one name, but I may have to stick with one El name and one Em name. Please tell me why you would or would not keep each name on my list. Thanks!

    Girls: Eleanor, Elena, Ella, Emma, Everly
    Boys: Elliot, Emerson, Emmett

    Very hard to narrow down these names. For the girls I love (in order) Emma, Ella, and Eleanor. I also really like Everly. I love all three boys' names.

    Ella and Everly are trendy and insubstantial. Emma is beginning to feel dated. Elena is an understated, versatile choice, but I'd have to go with Eleanor on the basis of her sterling history and plethora of nicknames (including Ella!).

    The boys are much tougher. Elliot, Emerson, and Emmett are all great names. Since Eleanor is the best name on your girl's list, I would eliminate Elliot. Emerson feels more august and stylish than Emmett, so stick with Emerson. Emerson and Eleanor - what a fabulous sibset!

    Thanks augusta_lee! I also like Eleanor for her many nn options, including Ella. I also have Nora on my short list.
