my aunt wanted to name her daughter Elsie after a favourite pretend auntie (her mum's friend) but hubby thought it was too Granny-ish so they went for Elise instead which I think is lovely

My nan was's beautiful smile
She has a grandaughter named Elise....she was really chuffed at that.

My fav girl name is actually Eloise, however, it does seem to gaining in popularity (not that there is anything wrong with that), therefore, thought Elsie would be a bit more unusual.

Love, love, love Elsie...wish DH did too but was vetoed for me

oohlaalaa Mon 10-Oct-11 09:39:42

Hate the name. Sorry. I love Elise and Eloise though, softer sounding and much nicer.

I think it's cool. DD1 had a very sweet little friend at nursery called Elsie. However, we gave it to DD2 as a mn and most people were like hmm

Love Elsie, very sweet! Like it as a nn for Elspeth too

minipie Mon 10-Oct-11 11:05:03

If you prefer Eloise (I do too) then use that. Elsie could become very popular too in which case you'd have compromised on name for no reason!

NotAnotherNewNappy Mon 10-Oct-11 11:06:25

BON Now I want an Elspeth nn Elsie envy

winkle2 Tue 11-Oct-11 18:43:36

PandaG Tue 11-Oct-11 19:08:18

is becoming more popular - I know 2 4yo Elsies.

Fixture Tue 11-Oct-11 20:29:59

It's a pretty name, short for Elisabeth.

sweetandtenderhooligan Tue 11-Oct-11 20:48:33

Beautiful. DS would've been Elsie if he'd been a girl...[wistfull]

LimburgseVlaai Tue 11-Oct-11 20:54:12

They call her Natasha when she looks like Elsie
I don't want to go to Chelsea

[Elvis Costello song. I'm very old.] FWIW I like the name.

cerealqueen Wed 12-Oct-11 22:32:50

I love it, DP not so keen (but its on the shortlist just in case)

BonnieWeeJeannieMcCall Wed 12-Oct-11 23:23:07

I'm even older than you, LimburgseVlaai.

I used to have a girlfriend known as Elsie
With whom I shared two squalid rooms in Chelsea
She wasn't what you'd call a blushing flow-er
As a matter of fact she rented by the hour ...

I love it, I would have loved to have called DD2 Elsie but DH said no!
