I'm sure people have also used it to make it a "unique" spelling of Elise.

Nameberry is so down on my name! I've lived with it for 33 years and I'd say it's a pretty amazing name. It's not the same as Elise, anyway. Some people pronounce Elise "EE-LEESE". My name is "UH-LEESE".

No, it pronounced in Latvian AH-LIS-E (European "e", not american) !! Its a girls name. How come you call it the "worst variation"? English speakers are the ones with twisted letter pronunciation and you call us weird??

This is my middle name. It's a variant of Alice and means "Noble," which was my grandfather's name. I'm thinking of passing it on to a little girl of my own. :)
