    Top three names... which to choose?

    Elsie Jade (after my favourite racehorse!) / Elsie Gwendolyn (after my beloved Nan)
    Georgina Sophie (though George is the number 1 boy choice)
    Lara Sophie

    Last name has a double L sound and ends in an 'ee'

    All about the last name for me:

    If it’s two syllable, then Elsie possibly too cute

    If it starts in an A (and possibly other vowels), Lara and Georgina might not sound great

    If it starts in E, Elsie might not work

    Then I’m not sure if the ending of Sophie goes with the -ee last name (if last name two syllable especially)

    Elsie Gwendolyn flows best (depending on last name). But my personal fave is Lara Sophie then Georgina Sophie, but what about Georgina Gwen to honour your nan?

    Elsie Gwendolyn. For me, Nan will always trump a racehorse. Lol. I do love Elsie Jade, too.

    Elsie Jade - the different number of syllables in each name makes it flow nicely. However, I do think Elsie is a name that will seem dated in 10-15 years. It's cute and will come and go in terms of popularity but it's not a 'classic.' Just my opinion, clearly.

    Lara Sophie - I like the simple 'Lara' spelling - it seems modern and pairs nicely with the more elaborately spelled Sophie

    The Gwendolyn one - I love Gwendolyn and it's very underused

    I like that Elsie Gwendolyn honors a special person for you and it sounds nice. I also really like the simplicity and gentle sound of Lara Sophie. So, it's between those two for me.

    Three lovely prospects. Georgina is my personal favorite.

    Ooh, Elsie Gwendolyn is stunning! It's definitely my favorite for you. Elsie is such a sweet, spritely first name, and Gwendolyn has such a meaningful connotation for you. It's also elegant and unique.
