Elliot 😊

Euan. Elliot is too surnamey for me.

Love Elliot suits all ages.

Euan. Don't like surnames as first names.

BigCalmJelly Thu 16-Feb-17 01:18:15

Any name can be a surname?

Elliot is formed from Elias... It isn't exactly an original surname like Williamson!

Always liked Elliot, but then looking at badminton teams in our local school... One list had 3 out of 7 called Elliot. So if you want him to be good at badminton is a good choice of name!

Euan- it was on our list if DD had been a boy. Great name.

Euan for definite

Elliott is a surname

Francies so is James, Louis, Charles, etc. are they not usable either? Definitely not the made up Elliott grin

Thanks for the comments!

All of those names have been forenames for centuries

IMO Elliott is a surname. And I'm not the only person who has said so on this thread

You are perfectly at liberty to think differently, but there's no point in denying it is a common opinion

Oh and I also get flashbacks to ET saying "Ell-I-ott"

Elliot. If we ever have another boy it's on our list. Although DH doing the ET thing drove me bonkers with the last one during pregnancy. I doubt you would forever associate your child with a 1980s alien though.

It was on our list until I realised that our surname begins with a T, so we'd definitely get the ET references a lot!

Much prefer Euan (Ewan). Have heard Elly as nn for Elliot and not keen.

MrsMeeseeks Thu 16-Feb-17 09:10:30

I love them both equally. Not much help, sorry!

MelCookie Thu 16-Feb-17 09:17:50

I much prefer Euan.

Euan, lovely name.
Elliot has always sounded a bit weak to me.

marmitecheesetoast Thu 16-Feb-17 09:22:40

I've always liked the name Euan. DH won't let me have it on our shortlist though envy
Must admit Elliot also makes me think of ET, sorry!

Elliot, by a smidgen.

Euan is a bit wet.

Euan - but prefer it spelled Ewan.
