I'm not sure confused

I believe Elliott is the "traditional" spelling, but I like Elliot equally.

For a first name, Elliot.

I think of Elliott as a surname.

I know that probably sounds daft!

I think the single t looks better.

Elizabeth Elliot is the traditional smile

Agree Elliott is more a surname

Elliot is traditional European version. Elliott is the US version.

The extra 't' doesn't seem necessary to me, and takes longer to write. There are not many words than end in double t. It's a originally a surname anyway, isn't it, and most times I think the surname has only one 't'.

I agree that Elliot looks like a first name, and Elliott more like a surname.

I also think Elliot just looks nicer and more streamlined.

I have an Elliott, and wished that I had only given him the one t. Everyone including family spell his name wrong.

I prefer Elliot (but interestingly when I went to type it I automatically used two Ts and had to correct it).

I have an Elliott, with two Ts. We felt it looked more complete that way and that is how Elliott from ET is spelt (and where I got the name from)
Gorgeous name, however it is spelt

Elliot but I like the name either way. Elliott makes me think of Elliott Smith.

Single t for a first name.
