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?

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

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

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

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.

Sunnysummer Wed 03-Jul-13 12:41:15

We have one in my mothers' group (4 months) and one in my building (9 months). Definitely seems to be a name on the rise around here, but probably depends where you live.

MrsJohnDeere Wed 03-Jul-13 12:48:30


Lovely name

EasterHoliday Wed 03-Jul-13 12:53:49

I know five of them, all 6 and under. They seem to be multiplying rapidly round here.

Camdenstyles Wed 03-Jul-13 13:48:31

My daughter is Elodie and just turned 1. I get a lot of positive comments on her name and how unusual it is. Be prepared for the comparisons to Melody though.

We are in NW London and haven't come across another Elodie yet.

Damnautocorrect Wed 03-Jul-13 13:50:19

I know three. I think it's a gorgeous name

AmIGoingMad Sat 06-Jul-13 06:42:58

Just updating to say that we decided to go for it and use Elodie! Dd was born on weds and it really suits her! Thanks for your responses!smile

dimdommilpot Sat 06-Jul-13 09:09:53

I dont know any and it would be top of the list for any future potential DDs but our DD already has an E name.

dimdommilpot Sat 06-Jul-13 09:10:56

Just saw your response. Congratulations on your new baby smile

Camdenstyles Sat 06-Jul-13 09:18:27

Hello Elodie's mummy AmIGoingMad great name choice - congratulations thanks.

MummyPig24 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:21:33

I know 2 Elodies, both 3.

I was at uni with an Elodie, who was Scottish. She will be 35 now.

Radiator1234 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:24:27

I know an Elodie in France she is in her early 30s I think it's a pretty name

Yika Sun 07-Jul-13 22:29:58

Yes, French colleague, mid-30s. I personally don't like the name at all.

AmIGoingMad Sun 07-Jul-13 23:26:48

I personally love it as you might have noticed from the update that I've just named my daughter Elodie! smile

Flibbedyjibbet Sun 07-Jul-13 23:30:30

Yes, she's 4. At first I thought it was parents messing with and incorrectly spelling Melody!

Lovingpeasandcarrots Sun 07-Jul-13 23:38:32

CongratulationssmileWelcome to the world Elodie

It's my daughters middle name so I think its great.

MultipleMama Mon 08-Jul-13 10:28:37
