What do you think of Ellyse?

And do you think Rose would be a nice middle name?

ThursdayLast Sat 28-Jun-14 23:05:19

I'm not sure how to pronounce it?

badtime Sat 28-Jun-14 23:51:11

I have seen Elyse, a variant spelling of Elise, but I think Ellyse is a bit more unusual.

I would use Elise, which is a lovely name.

Bunbaker Sun 29-Jun-14 00:08:41

I wouldn't know how to pronounce it either. I know an Elise, but think that the double L might change the pronunciation to Ellis.

I also wouldn't know how to pronounce it. I think you'd be forever correcting people.

Like the name, hate the way you're spelling it. Rose is nice, but every other girl I know has Rose as a middle name.

DramaAlpaca Sun 29-Jun-14 00:25:09

I think it would be better if you stuck with Elise, or Elyse if you must, or you will have problems with people not knowing how to say it.

I also think you might need a longer middle name. Elyse Rose is a bit short & blunt.

Do you mean Elise?

Please spell it correctly!

Elena and Elissa and Elissia are nice too.

JapaneseMargaret Sun 29-Jun-14 00:28:15

Agree with everyone else.

Elise is a lovely name.

Rose is a default middle name, these days.

SquidgyMaltLoaf Sun 29-Jun-14 00:41:47

Have also seen Ellice as an alternative spelling if that helps!

badtime Sun 29-Jun-14 01:39:36

I would pronounce Ellice like Ellis.

Oriunda Sun 29-Jun-14 06:27:14

Elise (or even Elisa) is a nice name

burgatroyd Sun 29-Jun-14 07:16:06

Elise is OK. Instead of Rose how about Pearl, Wren, Beryl, Blossom, Bluebell, Violet, Iris, Ocean...

So many lovely names and with a middle you can afford to be different.

If you like rose it would be great as a first name

KoalaDownUnder Sun 29-Jun-14 07:19:21

Elise. I wouldn't use any of the other spellings.

Rose is a pretty, but v v boring, middle name.

BeginnerSAHM Sun 29-Jun-14 07:25:56

Likewise - love Elise and, although rose is popular, think it's very pretty. Sorry, I agree that your spelling looks like a made up name and rather odd... People won't know how to pronounce it.

LtEveDallas Sun 29-Jun-14 07:39:38

Elise is lovely, but I don't like your spelling, sorry.

Rose is a bit <meh>. It's like it's a 'go to' name for people who cannot think of another one, I've lost count of the middle name Rose's I know (although May is bad too - in DDs class there are 9 girls, 5 of them have the middle name May)

KatieKaye Sun 29-Jun-14 07:42:53

I love Elise and have only ever met one person called that, so quite unusual.
But I'd stick with the traditional spelling and chose different middle name as both end in the same sound. Elise Roseanna? Elise Rosamund?

Bigbottomtwirl Sun 29-Jun-14 16:06:39

Ok we will go for Elise. I didn't realise the spelling error.

Rose is a family name so I'm not bothered about it being too popular.

NellyNoodle1 Mon 30-Jun-14 20:57:26

I don't think Ellyse is an unusual spelling? It's my 20 year old SIL's name. She never gets called it though just Ellie so just be aware of that.

badtime Mon 30-Jun-14 23:34:19

NellyNoodle1, in 2012 in England and Wales, there were 391 babies named Elise, 26 named Elyse and too few called Ellyse to register (i.e. 0, 1 or 2).

'Ellyse' is definitely an unusual spelling. The fact that you know someone with the name just means that it has been used at least once before.

NellyNoodle1 Tue 01-Jul-14 05:26:20

Yes I realise that I'm not thick in just saying she hasn't made it up or imagined it to be a name.

Either way she will be Ellie.

badtime Tue 01-Jul-14 12:06:52

But no-one said she had made it up or imagined it, just that it was unusual and there might be issues with pronunciation and they preferred Elise.

Bigbottomtwirl Tue 01-Jul-14 22:04:28

Why will she be Ellie either way?

My other 3 girls have names that could be shortened instead we picked nick names and they are either called by their name or nick name not a shortened version of their names.

zingally Sat 05-Jul-14 15:15:45

It's okay, but please spell it Elise if you're going to use it.

littlejohnnydory Sat 05-Jul-14 16:35:52

I prefer Elisa with Rose, think Elise and Rose are both lovely names but the ending is too similar?
