We like the name, but can't decide on the spelling smile

Potential middle names are Violet or Grace.

Other suggestions welcome, though nothing beginning with 'J'

Damn auto correct, I checked the text body but not the title grin

The question is Eloise or Elouise? smile

I think the standard spelling is Eloise, which I prefer, but Elouise also makes sense in that it is not "creative".

Not Grace though..... it seems to have become such a common middle name as to be completly indistinctive iyswim.

Eloise Violet is nice though.

This is one where autocorrect is correct... Has to be Eloise, the other one looks like a misspelling to me.

I like Eloise Violet, it's a nice spiky contrast to the softer sound of the fIrst name smile Grace is pretty too, but currently seems like a more common 'filler' middle name (along with Rose and Mae).

Eloise is so pretty. I also really like elodie but oh said no!

Not keen on violet and grace is quite common now but if its what you like go for it!

Thanks, good point made about autocorrect and Grace smile

I had Eloise Violet on my longshort list but my husband has vetoed Eloise sad It's a beautiful name smile

Go with autocorrect.

Elouise looks like it could be said E-Louise.

Eloise Grace is very pretty

I find the combination of Eloise and Violet difficult to say and to look at because of the recurrence of 'i' and 'o', but reversed, if you see what I mean.

Eloise, definitely. Elouise would be pronounced entirely differently, surely?

Prefer Eloise

How about Eloise May instead?

Eloise.

I know 4 little girls called Eloise. All spell their name this way.

Eloise Violet is gorgeous!!!!

Linguaphile Sun 25-Aug-13 14:14:14

I really like Eloise Violet.

Eloise - Elouise looks wrong and the I is entirely redundant.

TangfasticMrFoxalastic Sun 25-Aug-13 16:17:56

Wow thanks, that's pretty conclusive! And was my preferred spelling too so even better wink

I shall pass on the verdict smile

picnicbasketcase Sun 25-Aug-13 16:19:16

^ That should have said the 'U', not the 'I', of course. The I is very important smile

Thumbwitch Sun 25-Aug-13 16:22:38

Good ol' autocorrect, got it completely right for once! Glad you're taking the hint wink

I love the name Eloise. I agree that Grace is very popular at the moment but as it's a middle name, does that really matter? Still, if you like that kind of name, what about:
Eloise Faith
Eloise Hope

A friend of mine just had a baby abd called her Elouise. To me it looks odd and much prefer the other correct spelling. smile

racingheart Sun 25-Aug-13 16:23:29

Eloise is really pretty. Not sure it goes with Violet - it's the o-ee i-o vowels that sound a bit odd. I like Grace, even if it is popular. Lovely meaning and sounds pretty with Eloise.

Heloise is a medieval name I will throw into the mix.

I like eloise as a spelling better than the other way

Heloise.

How are you allpronounincing Eloise? I say elouise, I wouldn't spell it that way, but its the way I would say it.

Mucho prefer violet as a MN too!

Eloise is lovely. Elouise sounds like an online version of Louise.
