Hi!
I'm trying to work out how popular the name Elodie is now in the uk.
When I've started threads on here on this name, lots have said that its popular but its not on top 100 lists and I've not heard of any around here.

So, do you know any? How old are they?

TIA!smile

I don't know any.

My daughter is 2 and called Eloise which is similar and i only know 1 other. I have met one little girl called Elodie who would be about the same age, we live in the uk.

P.s beautiful name :-)

This is a brilliant website which shows you the popularity of names on a graph from 1996 to 2010 (latest statistics)
There were 157 Elodies in E&W in 2010, and you can see it has had a steady rise, up from 1364th in 1996 to 297th

I know one. Born the same day as DS. She is just 2. It's beautiful.

I know one in the UK, she's 4. It's a very pretty name.

I know 3, all under 1 but all scattered around though! One in Scotland, London and switzerland. I think it's really beautiful!

I know two in uk, one aged eleven, one aged four.

AmIGoingMad Sun 30-Jun-13 20:52:11

Thanks for the link to the website!

So it seems from that that its grown in popularity but it also seems that its not at the point of being everywhere yet!

Some really positive reactions to it here too- thanks!smile

I know one of about 8 yrs old in my neck of the woods (London).

Gorgeous name.

BlueStarsAtNight Sun 30-Jun-13 21:08:25

I know 2 in their late 20's/early 30's, both French, and one who is 2 months old (no French links). I also know of another 2 under 5 but don't know them personally.

Smartiepants79 Sun 30-Jun-13 21:10:31

Yes, both her parents are professional musicians.
Think they took it from melody.

IPreferCats Sun 30-Jun-13 21:12:12

I know 1 - she's 3.

There is another in my childrens school but don't know how old - prob 5 or 6.

I was in the park one day and there was one there.

I'm in kent.

LucyTheValiant Sun 30-Jun-13 22:12:37

I know 3 - two in their 20s (one is French) and one baby. I'm in the south east. It's very pretty but I think it is on the rise if that bothers you.

IceAddict Sun 30-Jun-13 22:17:47
