Love this name for a baby girl, as a stand alone name. (Find out tomorrow what I'm having eeek)grin

I really like Ellie Sophia. (Can not use Sophia as a first name before people suggest)

What are your thoughts?

I love Ellie. It was our first choice and the only name we agreed on before we found out we are having a boy!

VilootShesCute Mon 10-Oct-16 16:01:10

Best name ever. Have fun tomorrow!

bluebumblebeee Mon 10-Oct-16 16:01:28

Me too, just like me and DH then grin

I really like Dylan for a boy, but DH doesn't like it one bit. Struggling much more for boy nameshmm

Beautiful name x

bluebumblebeee Mon 10-Oct-16 16:02:35

Viloot I completely agree!grinthank you, I am so excited.

bluebumblebeee Mon 10-Oct-16 16:03:05

Changed NN! Sorry for any confusion grin

Very very popular (I work in a primary school) but if that doesn't bother you, go for it.

bluebumblebeee Mon 10-Oct-16 16:05:28

Really! I thought it had died down a bit now. I don't know many in my area

I like it a lot. It was top 10 popular between around 2005-2010, that's probably why there are so many in primary schools right now! But it has dropped in popularity in recent years.

I love Sophia too so I think it's a great pairing.

SuburbanRhonda Mon 10-Oct-16 16:28:45

There are 13 in our school (one-form entry primary) smile

I prefer Eleanor as a full name. Ellie on its own looks a little unfinished somehow smile

Very pretty and not as heard of now

I think its nicer as a nickname
Really like Dylan tho 👍
Have a fab time at th scan 😊

SO popular that all my dd's friends called this need to add a surname initial.

katemess12 Tue 11-Oct-16 08:07:52

I don't like it as a stand alone name.

One Tree Hill had an Elizabeth with the nickname Ellie though, and that's nice.

Lovely name. I know more Eleanors and Ellens than Ellies for some reason. They all get called Elle for short.

neonrainbow Tue 11-Oct-16 08:17:40

Very boring.

NavyandWhite Tue 11-Oct-16 11:35:08

I have never liked the sound of Ellie. Whereas Eleanor is beautiful.

SorenaJ Tue 11-Oct-16 11:48:26

Ellie is lovely, and Ellie Sophia works well.

DramaInPyjamas Tue 11-Oct-16 11:52:19

It's a lovely name, very popular though - my kids know about 10 of them between them at school

All known as Ellie B, Ellie F, Ellie S, etc

bluebumblebeee Tue 11-Oct-16 13:01:11

Well my gut feeling was right, it's a girl! grin

Thank you for all the replies. I have a 5yr old brother (big age gap I know haha) and he doesn't have any Ellie's in his class. Not sure about school as a whole, but it's not that popular where I am fromgrin

bluebumblebeee Tue 11-Oct-16 13:01:44

It would really bother me otherwise, especially if I knew an Ellie... but I don'tsmile

DerelictMyBalls Tue 11-Oct-16 20:28:01

I think it's overused, sorry.

NavyandWhite Tue 11-Oct-16 20:43:44

It's clunky to my ears. And dated.
Ella Sophia would be nice.
