In keeping with the 'ella' theme, how about Mariella?

MrsMichelRouxJr Thu 21-Jan-16 22:51:52

Sorry OP it sounds like a brand of contraceptive pill. I'm not keen.

How about just 'Ella' which I think is lovely?

fastdaytears Thu 21-Jan-16 22:52:39

I love it

MrsMichelRouxJr Thu 21-Jan-16 22:53:43

Or Gabriella?

I think it's lovely. It a normal name but not ridiculously popular like Ella

moreshitandnofuckingredemption Thu 21-Jan-16 23:08:26

Love it

Mariella fostrup? Frostrup?

Quite cutesy... But sweet.

Pipestheghost Thu 21-Jan-16 23:54:40

I like it.

Ouch44 Thu 21-Jan-16 23:58:12

I know a Mariella. I think it's a nice name. I have never thought contraceptive about it! Ella is a bit boring.

Tootsiepops Fri 22-Jan-16 00:10:45

It was on my shortlist, but husband vetoed it sad

I'm with Ouch44 - go for it!

flanjabelle Fri 22-Jan-16 14:33:01

Love it.

Marietta biscuits! They make Digestives look exciting.

IoraRua Fri 22-Jan-16 16:44:50

I love it

MissBattleaxe Fri 22-Jan-16 16:49:41

I think its pretty, but don;t shorten it to Ella or Ellie as that's way overdone now.

Custard314 Fri 22-Jan-16 16:49:51

I really like it. Perhaps I prefer Marielle though.

breezeharbour Fri 22-Jan-16 17:42:42

"Mariella, Mariella
Pretty, pretty girl
Mariella, Mariella
Happy in her own little world"

Second name I've seen on this topic that's made me think of a song!
I really like it smile

It's just a short form of Maria.

Millions of them in Italy.

They are all between 35-50.

midsomermurderess Fri 22-Jan-16 18:31:14

I really like it and Mariella Frostrup shows you can also be ballsy with such a pretty name.

handonhip Sat 23-Jan-16 02:09:01

Really love Marielle. OH vetoed.

MissAlabamaWhitman Sat 23-Jan-16 10:50:56

My name is Marielle.

I think that on balance id have preferred Mariella.
My name gets shortened to Maz, not Ella or Elle but then I am in my thirties. I don't know any thirty year old Elle/Ellie's, plenty of five year old ones though
