French links on both sides, and I really like it, but not sure if it's a bit pretentious. What do you think?

I hadn't been thought of that!!. Not a fan at all of Ellie - I'm a teacher and know loads... Oh bugger...

It was on my list, I love it, very pretty and feminine. She doesn't have to be an 'Ellie' - you really determine any NNs given.

No don't be sorry snails - if you think it then loads of other people will too!
Yes I love it too... Still, a while to go and probably not even a girl - only got a bfp this week and already have two DSs, so odds on this is another!! smile

I have an Eloise and she has never been called Ellie. We've never called her Ellie so no one else has. None of her school friends call her anything other than Eloise.

Elodie is lovely - reminds me of melody so it sounds musical to me smile

Snails, yes, I know a few Elizabeths and similar who refuse to be anything else so it could work. I do still love it.
WeAresix, ds is obsessed with the new cbeebies programme Melody... Hmm, I guess I have a while it think about it. Middle name suggestions???!

WeAreSix Fri 07-Feb-14 21:55:59

All of my DDs middle names are family connections. And probably all get massive MN thumbs down!

I think it is lovely. A friend recently named her baby this and i wish i had though of it a month earlier when i had mine! Serious name envy. Though actually, i'm sure DD wouldn't have suited it; she is not dainty enough! It is a dancer's name!

I think it's a beautiful name.

I love Camille

bluebelle2662 Sat 08-Feb-14 14:50:02

I love Elodie, if I wasn't having a boy I would have called my LO that. It's beautiful, and doesn't have to be shortened to Ellie!

Mumof3xx Sat 08-Feb-14 14:51:55

I love elodie and Eloise

BikeRunSki Sat 08-Feb-14 14:52:13

Elodie could be Lola or Deedee.
It is a lovely name.

I know an elodie, she is often called melody by people instead.

Its very pretty though. I quite like violette, but pronounced in the French waysmile?
