What does her name get shortened to? I'm hoping to avoid the ubiquitous 'Ellie'....

LondonSpoon Wed 01-Jun-16 16:57:32

The one I know is called Eloise. That's it

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 01-Jun-16 16:58:13

Lou.

Wishfulmakeupping Wed 01-Jun-16 16:58:53

Elle And Ellie

Owllady Wed 01-Jun-16 16:59:04

Both are called elouise

Normandy144 Wed 01-Jun-16 16:59:35

The one I know is shortened to Elle but pronounces it Ellie.

wonkylegs Wed 01-Jun-16 17:00:07

The one I know is never shortened

The one I know is Ellie but her parents chose Eloise as they wanted a name they could shorten to Ellie! grin
Mind you, she's 12.

One I know gets called Lou and is 5

yellowbirdie Wed 01-Jun-16 18:52:20

I know an Eloisa and it is shortened to Lou

I know a very elegant Heloise who is only ever Heloise.

I know an Elouisa who gets Elouisa (which in my mind is a mash-up of Elouise and Louisa but not an actual name)

mrsclooneytoyou Wed 01-Jun-16 18:58:04

Lou

calamityjam Wed 01-Jun-16 18:58:17

Dd is called Elle for short or Ellie but hates Eloise, I love it still she's 13

I'm a 30 year old Eloise. I used to hate it as a child and so insisted on Lou. People I've met post around 18 years old call me Eloise and I much prefer this now.

Hurricane99 Wed 01-Jun-16 19:30:24

I know one who is just called Elouise, no shortening

Others I've know have been Lou. I don't know any shortened to Elle

Woodenmouse Wed 01-Jun-16 19:33:16

I knew 2 neither one was shortened

eatmytoes888 Wed 01-Jun-16 19:52:48

I've known a few, never been shortened to Elle or Ellie. Pretty name!

FlyDragonfly1 Thu 02-Jun-16 00:15:17

I know one, she gets called Ellie.

manicinsomniac Thu 02-Jun-16 00:21:55

I teach 3 and none of them ever get shortened to anything.

MaitlandGirl Thu 02-Jun-16 00:36:19

I've got an Eloise (18) and she goes by Ellie or Elle.

pieceofpurplesky Thu 02-Jun-16 00:53:43

Ells oe Ello

My dd is Eloise - we call her 'Weezy'. She likes it!!

minipie Mon 06-Jun-16 14:08:27

Not shortened

(but she has a completely different short nickname that we use)

IoraRua Mon 06-Jun-16 14:11:33

It'll be her name, not yours. Ellie is a very obvious shortening of Elouise and she might love it - if you really don't like Ellie, don't do it.
