    Elle as a full name

    The poll about favorite "Elle" names has me wondering how many feel Elle could be used as a full name.

    Meh. I like Ella (and Bella, and Belle) more than just Elle, but Elle is sweet and rather unexpected. It's a nice balance between sweet, adorable little girl and fashionable and super-modely (probably thanks to Elle magazine). It's chic. I probably wouldn't use it alone, but I've seen some combos I REALLY love with just Elle (Elle Carolina, Elle Rebecca, Elle Francesca). I love so many more elaborate names that I feel like either Elle would be shortchanged, or I would miss out using some of my favorite Elle names. Like Isabelle. And Eleanor. and Eliora. And Arielle/Ariella and Arabella and... well, you see.

    LOVE Elle. My favorite combo is Elle Felicity. Nickname could be Elfie, too. I like Elle on its own. It feels so...free. Like they aren't bound to any specific personality or image.

    I'd use it as a nickname. I tend to see one-syllable names as more middle-name material. Elle has a lovely sound, though, and would be great in either spot.

    I think Elle is understated and gorgeous as a standalone first name.
