Sorry - makes me think of lady's personal bits! But that's just me! If you love it - go for it.

I prefer Elma, Elsie, Esme.

HTH.

I would always think of Elvis, sorry!

IAteTheCake Tue 30-Jul-13 16:15:21

Perfer Alva, Ava, Eva, Elma....

Rhubarbgarden Tue 30-Jul-13 19:32:05

Is it a name?

OneoftheseBoxes Tue 30-Jul-13 19:34:40

Makes me think Elvira. How about Elsa?

Edithmark Tue 30-Jul-13 19:34:40

'Elver' is the name for a baby eel...sorry.

ZolaBuddleia Tue 30-Jul-13 19:36:47

Makes me think Elvira too. Conjuring up an image of a baby Mystic Meg.

As in the witch child from the Eragon / Inheritance Cycle books?

Baby eels

I know an Eilbhe, pronounced the same way. It's beautiful, IMO.

I think it's lovely! A girl I know (in Ireland) recently called her little girl Eile (fada on first e, pronounced A-la).

Alba is also quite nice.

Elsa?

baby eels - elver

JamieandtheMagicTorch Tue 30-Jul-13 19:55:07

I prefer Elvie

Nice but at first glance all I thought of was vulva!

TalkativeJim Tue 30-Jul-13 20:29:07

First thought - slimy baby eels, all wriggling like a bowl of spaghetti.

Vitamincandy Tue 30-Jul-13 20:35:19

Elva means 11 in Swedish. How about Ylva or Elvira?

MargeSimpsonzz Tue 30-Jul-13 20:49:08

I know of one in Ireland. I think it's an Anglicisation of Eilbhe. I like it. It's pretty.

lol at its similarity to Vulva though! shock Never thought of that. I would go for Elvie I think. Safer.

grin at the Eel's I never knew...

I just stumbled across it on Nymbler. Assume it's an anglisation of Eilbhe.

luckyclucky Tue 30-Jul-13 21:52:48

Yes to baby eels

How about Elfie?

Manoodledo Tue 30-Jul-13 22:04:04

I like it, with Elvie as a short form. Lovely.

Turniptwirl Tue 30-Jul-13 23:07:49

Vulva or Elvis is all I think of

MaryBateman Tue 30-Jul-13 23:20:11

Nooo!

Reminds me of the French & Saunders sketch where they were supposedly Elvis's daughters - Elvine and Elvess. And yes, it sounds too much like Vulva!

Elsa

ChristineDaae Thu 01-Aug-13 22:00:45

She's pretty cursed and well...odd in Eragon

Frikadellen Thu 01-Aug-13 22:01:05

I like it.
