Not even pregnant yet but already thinking of names for our 2nd child if its a girl.

We have DD 20 months called Isla and think that Eleska is on the same par as Isla, but just wanted to know what others thought (although it would'nt change my mind lol)

Sorry, perhaps it's Dutch or Nordic, I don't know If not, it either sounds made-up or like a weird way of saying "Alaska". What about Corin or Morag?

lol oh no! lol i know someone who has a little girl called Eleska, she is about 8 or 9 now so have had it "banging Around" for a while.

Appreciate your opinion though smile

Electra is nicer

I think Isla and Eleska are too similar

Sounds a made up name to me.

I think Eleska is lovely and not too similar to Isla

I like the look and sound of Eleska.

"Sounds a made up name to me."

Surely, every single name has been made up at some point. And new names are constantly added e.g. lots of nicknames as standalone names these days. Or animal names e.g. Tiger, Bear etc, or flowers etc.

She'd spend her life saying "no, not Alaska...". It also makes me think of escalators. It's a no from me.

Too similar to Isla.

Sounds like Alaska with a kre8tiv spelling. I bet you'll get asked if she was conceived in Alaska.

It sounds like what a child would call an escalator.

Sure it isn't Eliska you have heard? If so it is Czech, a form of Elizabeth. I love it.

Yes, it sounds like a Kiwi saying Alaska.

What about Eléa or Elena?
