    I have yet to meet a little Eloise. I don't think it will ever get uber popular. Love the name!

    It's one of the names I'm bringing to the hospital for my own little one. I mulled over the popularity issue before deciding that. In the end, I think it's a very popular name to discuss on blogs where people really CARE about names. (e.g. this one) but I don't think my child is going to meet that many other Eloises in her life. I feel the same way about Nora --lots of people LOVE Nora, but I only know ONE Nora.
    Latest list:

    Girl: Emilia, Navy
    Boy: Franklin, Gage

    Mommy to one sweet little boy who I loved naming Lennox Andrew Michael

    Nope! I love it. And there's a point where popularity doesn't matter; if you love it, USE IT.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    And do you care as much about the popularity of a middle versus a first name (I'm inclined to be more relaxed about it)?
    My daughter is an Isabella. Here is my take on it:

    1. Do you *really* love it?
    3. Can you make a nickname from the middle name in case there are 6 Isabella's/Olivia's/Sophia's in her class?
    3. Are you OK with a LONG name that might be hard to spell for little fingers? Isabella is LONG!

    I also really love Olivia but my DH veto'd that because he knew a crazy girl named Olivia. *sigh* Eloise is my BILs niece's name and I love that one as well. Go with what you like, who cares how popular, I say!

    We decided to name my daughter Isabella Jeanene so, her first name is quite popular, obviously, and the middle, not so much. Especially the spelling, this is my mothers name. I came up with Bella Jean, which would be quite unique if/when the time comes my DD wants to have a more unique name.

    My name is Phoebe. Beautiful and unique YES but hard to grow up with. I like more traditional names as a result of having such a unique name.

    NO! I LOVE ELOISE! Pleeease. It's too lovely. Please use it! But—what is the first name going to be?
    Just a teenage writer with a fascination for names!
