I absolutely adore this name! However, I find it hard to pair with a middle name that I love as much and it sounds very trendy(Kailey, Bailey, etc.) and nicknamey that I worry it wouldn't age well.

This is a variation of Aileen and thus a form of Helen. It's got nothing to do with Alice, as far as I know.
