We are expecting our second girl and are really struggling for names! Our first daughter has a reasonably unusual name so we don't want to give our second a popular name but we are finding it difficult to decide between a very 'out there' name (Ellida) and more normal names (Harriet, Olive). Olive is a family name and Harriet because it's a lovely name and I always wanted an Ettie! Ellida is a Scandinavian name (I'm half Scandinavian) from an Ibsen play. Any opinions or other options would be great. Thanks!
I think strictly speaking it's pronounced Elleeda but we would go with El-lid-ah which is how the English equivelant (spelt elida) is pronounced. Difficult though as don't want the poor girl to be explaining her name/spelling/pronunciation for the rest of her life!!
