I like this but would people think it's Melody? Are there any other spelling for this name? Elidie perhaps??

I think it's really lovely. I wasn't aware of alternative spellings but just searched and came up with Elody, Helodie and Elodee. I prefer the -ie and -y spellings.

Stick with Elodie. It's lovely.

Lovely, but please don't mess with the spelling.

I love Elodie! Definitely keep the original spelling though smile

Elodie... Beautiful name. Stick with it's proper French spelling. Part of what makes this name beautiful is its French origins.

Love it. I wanted it for DD but DP wasn't totally sold on it. I hope to persuade him if ever we have another girl.

How do you pronounce it? "ehl-uh-dee" or "e-LO-dee"?

Never heard of it. It sounds like a yodel to me.

I think it's lovely, definitely proper spelling though

I had a friend at school called Elodie. It's a beautiful name. Pronounced like Melody, Cats.

I love it, was on our shortlist with Ellie for nn smile

DD is called Elodie, sometimes gets mistaken for Melody but it's a beautiful name and lots of people comment on it. Rarely get the yodel too!

A beautiful name. Love it

Love it, have two friends with a dd called Elodie, one usually shortened to Ellie. I wouldn't change the spelling.

Love it, couldn't persuade DH to put it on our list.

I don't particularly like it, sorry.

Sophronia Thu 14-Jan-16 14:16:45

Don't like it at all, sorry.

Love it. My favourite girls name. Do wouldn't let me have it though.

MissBattleaxe Thu 14-Jan-16 14:40:45

Lovely just as it is.

I know an Elodie and she's a lovely little girl, so I like it. I don't know any others. It really suits her.

Ive only known one elodie who went to same nursery as my dd. I think it's a very pretty name. You will never get 100% of people liking any name. If you love it, go for it smile
