Stuck between three names!

Elle,
Elenie
Ellen

Any thoughts/opinions are very much appreciated! I hope I'm posting this in the right place, this is my first post smile

I'm not sure how to pronounce the middle one! I love Ellen. Although I wonder if it would get annoying people calling her Helen... What about Elaine? I think that is such a pretty name. Could shorten to Elle/El smile

Ellen - classic and underused

Elle but not heard Elenie before and it's quite sweet.

Elle

I'd use Elenie on her BC. Then you can you use either of the 3.

Elle, beautiful!
I've never met or heard Eleni spoken but in my head it's 'el-AY-nee'? I like it.
I have a friend Ellen (Ell-un) but my mum has always said Ell-in which grates. I like it though!

Eleni

Elenie (though I would use the traditional Eleni spelling). As others have said, that way you have all three name options in one.

None of them, every second kid is called a variation of Elle, Ella, Ellie, Ellen, just bloody confuses me now.

Elle

Elenie would been my favourite as it could be shortened to Elle but if you start with Elle you have no where to go with it if that makes sense. Really dislike Ellen it just sounds to me like Helen with a dropped h!

Elle. You'd have to put up with people mispronouncing it as 'Ellie', though.

Ellen, I have an Ellen and never met another one (she is 4) smile
