    Is Elsie too nicknamey??

    We are nowhere near settling on a name yet. Due in a little over 2 weeks. Not sure if boy or girl. I am loving Elsie as a sister for Mhairi and Fiona. Is Elsie too nick namey though? Would it need a full version? My husband still prefers Sadie for a girl but I have to say, I'd love another Scottish themed name if it's a girl and Elsie fits that mold.

    I personally don't like nicknames as full names, but it seems to work now.

    I don't think it is too nicknamey at all. It is a classic solid name. I met a little Elsie at the park one day and while it is a great name I still think of that stupid Borden Cow even though it is so far removed from my generation. Most children wouldn't have that association though.

    It's cute on a little girl but I can't imagine it on a grown woman. Elsa is lovely though, and an easy gateway to nn Elsie.
