I like both, i cant choose between the two. Alice is so sweet while Alicia is more cool.

To go with sister Eloise.

ps feel free to offer alternative suggestions you think might go well with eloise

Alicia is far more interesting than Alice.

Amira? It has a nice meaning (but I forget it!) other than that, Alice. I think it's cool.

I like Alicia best.

Alice, no contest.

Alicia has a very 80s feel to me.

Do you like Alyssa, if you like Alicia?
Otherwise I would vote Alice (but that is because it is on my short short list for my baby!). I don't think it is too close to Eloise.

Alice is much nicer. Alicia is a bit 1982.

I prefer Alice. Both are nice though smile

DGM was Alice, so its on my list if we have DC2.

How are you pronouncing alica Al-i-see-a or Al-eesh-a?

Alice, it's DD's name. She is 14 and it still suits her. She was Ali-bongo as a child, or Ali-bongofrombingo-bongoland to give her her full nickname.
I also love the name Eloise.

Love Alice.

Both nice though. DS1 would have been Alicia had he been a girl ("A-lis-eea"). DS2 would have been Alice. Somewhere in the intervening 2 years I decided that I preferred Alice - just a bit more classic / simple, and the prounouciation issue with Alicia put me off (not keen at all on the "Aleesha" pronounciation).

Prefer Alicia, goes better with Eloise IMHO
