Opinions please smile she'll be Elliotte Rose

Clunky. Sounds like a made up girly version of a boys name. Plus when you google it you get canadian men, not ladies.

Like the boy's name elliot or that canadian chap elliotte friendman?

It's not terrible. I think elliot is becomming more popular as a girl's name (i first saw it in scrubs and i thought it was cute)
What matters is you love it. It's not a siob name or anything. grin if you like it you absolutely should use it.

I don't like it sorry. I prefer the traditional spelling and I'm not really a fan of it for a girl.

BabyGirl12345 Tue 15-Mar-16 13:53:39

Her NN could be Ellie too smile

SecretlyChartreuse Tue 15-Mar-16 13:54:44

Looks too much like Toilette to me.

I love it as a boy's name but written as above it feels like it has way too many letters. If I was to use it for a girl or boy I'd spell it Elliot. What about Eloise as an alternative?

JanetOfTheApes Tue 15-Mar-16 13:55:48

Or Elodie?

I think many people will assume it is a boy's name, and that it's been misused - and you may need to do a lot of explaining when your baby is small and looks unisex! So depends if that would annoy you.

For me, if I was going to use Ellie as a NN, I would go for one of the more traditional longer forms.

It's one of my all-time faves for a boy, though.

Coldtoeswarmheart Tue 15-Mar-16 13:56:39

It's a boy's name to me.

Elodie is lovely, however.

Makes me think of deloitte

BabyGirl12345 Tue 15-Mar-16 13:57:35

I just feel like there's something quirky about Elliotte for a girl - Elliot reminds me of a last name (Billy Elliot) and Elliott is too masculine!

NiceHaberdashery Tue 15-Mar-16 13:57:44

Sorry, not convinced. Another vote for Elodie though, that's very pretty.

NoSquirrels Tue 15-Mar-16 13:58:49

Elodie
Elouise
Elise
Eleanor/Elinor
Ellen
Elle

I like it, I always think Elliot sounds more like a girls name rather than a boys anyway. I think its different and I like the spelling, personally I wouldn't shorten to Ellie, maybe Lottie instead?

squoosh Tue 15-Mar-16 13:59:22

Elliot/Elliott if you're so inclined but never Elliotte.

It reminds me of Deloitte, the auditors.

BoyGirlBoy3 Tue 15-Mar-16 13:59:46

Plenty of others like maxine, which feel more natural

AliciaMayEmory Tue 15-Mar-16 14:00:05

Not convinced here, either. Soundslike you are trying too hard to be quirky.

Cuttheraisins Tue 15-Mar-16 14:00:10

I am not keen on the name or spelling for a girl sorry. She will have to spend most of her primary school years with a name traditionally for boys and put up with having to spell it every time later on in life. It's not a question of liking it or not, it's a question of giving your child a name that will mean she will be picked on and she will have to spell all the time. Why? There are hundreds of really nice names, some traditional some more unusual, but a boys' name? Why? Ellie could be short for Eliza, Eleanor, Elena, Elodie, Eloise, ...

'Quirky' generally turns out to be a bit of a pain to the owner of a quirky name.

BertrandRussell Tue 15-Mar-16 14:02:15

Why on earth would you do this?

It's not even a feminine ending- it anything it means little Eliot.

You will spend your life saying "Actually, she's a girl". And she will spend her life explaining that she is actually a girl/woman and her name is spelled with an extra -te on the end.

ABitAsleep Tue 15-Mar-16 14:02:30

Don't like that spelling at all! Sorry!

I think Elliott is fine for a girl (I actually think it sounds more femenine than masculine) I know one, I know one in a book, and think it is becoming more popular for females.

YoungGirlGrowingOld Tue 15-Mar-16 14:02:52

Sorry but I think it's absolutely awful. It's a weird pseudo girly version of a masculine name that looks and sounds like toilet.

I like Elodie/Ellie.

wallywobbles Tue 15-Mar-16 14:03:42

Eliane. Pronounced Ellie Anne it's an old French name

BabyGirl12345 Tue 15-Mar-16 14:04:31

I highly doubt she'll be picked on, that's a bit far fetched. We are in the centre of London, there's lots of little children with different names, normally due to their background, but it's normal here. She wouldn't be picked on.

I understand the spelling thing, but most boys get that with Elliot/Elliott anyway. With Elliotte, I think people would assume girl?

I've just not fallen in love with any other name sad there are a couple I like, but they're traditionally for boys and so I would spell them different. Hmm, I'll keep thinking!
