ashesandfire Wed 24-Jun-15 19:07:22

Love it. On list for a future dd but a friend has just used it. Sigh....

BikeRunSki Wed 24-Jun-15 19:07:22

It has served me well for over 40 years smile

DramaAlpaca Wed 24-Jun-15 19:07:24

Love it. Beautiful & classic.

BeautifulStars93 Wed 24-Jun-15 19:19:50

what would it get shortened too? Alli, Lissie maybe?

Sorry but I hate the name with a passion. However, it is largely to do with every Alice I have met being, quite frankly, horrid.

But its classic, will never date, easy to pronounce and spell and if you like it that's what's important.

NomiMalone Wed 24-Jun-15 19:45:51

I really don't like it either.

insancerre Wed 24-Jun-15 19:46:18

I love it
I have an Alice
She doesn't really get it shortened
We did call her Ali bongo as a toddler. Actually, we used to call her alibongo from bingo land, so its hardly a shortened version

I have an Alice Eleanor. She is absolutely beautiful, the name suits her, it works in every context, and it's pretty and classic and strong all at the same time. I obviously think it is gorgeous smile

I have an Alice and for an affectionate nickname "Ally Pally" smile

I'm Ali to my siblings, everyone else has always just called me Alice. I've had the odd nn based on my surname or hair, but no other corruptions of Alice.

TempsPerdu Wed 24-Jun-15 20:24:36

Really like it. For some reason it's one of the only 'classic' names I never tire of hearing. Somehow it has gravitas but manages to sound youthful and pretty at the same time. Don't think it needs shortening - most of the Alices I've met are just Alice!

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Wed 24-Jun-15 20:27:46

Lovely name. It is actually perfectly possible to have a name that doesn't get shortened - I do, admittedly because I refused to answer to any of the many short versions of my name. Alice doesn't need shortening.

WorldsBiggestGrotbag Wed 24-Jun-15 20:29:57

I love it but can't use it as SIL is Alex!

AWhistlingWoman Wed 24-Jun-15 20:35:45

I like it. DD3 is an Alice. We call her Alice The Palace. But I'm thinking of switching to Ali Bongo from Bingo Land now grin

Also wishing I had used Eleanor as a second name but too late now. Alice Eleanor is really pretty swan

BeaufortBelle Wed 24-Jun-15 20:37:32

I have one. She is adorable. She was named after my adorable grandmother who pretty much brought me up. Apart from that it is classic, beautiful, pretty, noble, has no alternative spelling which helps if you have a surname pronounced as two syllables but written as three!!

Paradoxically she also has long blonde hair, is a bit quirky and is a good friend of a slightly mad marmalade cat grin

I think it is a name that is strong, feminine, vulnerable, kind, brave - all rolled into one.

..............and she thinks it is boring sad

Benderisgreat Wed 24-Jun-15 21:32:49

I love it...but then I have a beautiful 13 month old one.
She is also an Alice Eleanor smile

Gdydgkyk Wed 24-Jun-15 21:36:21

Love Alice, hate Ali

Pagerty Wed 24-Jun-15 22:15:11

It's a lovely name that just won't date.

BeautifulStars93 Wed 24-Jun-15 23:16:10

if we go with Alice shell be an
Alice Olivia Daisy. (all my children have 2 middle names)
or Alice Phoebe Daisy.

swancourt Thu 25-Jun-15 08:50:31

Alice Olivia Daisy is stunningly pretty. I like Alice Phoebe Daisy too, but I think the Olivia helps it flow better. That is an absolutely gorgeous name. USE IT! :D

Loving all the Alice Eleanors out there smile
