Eloise?

What type of child do you think of? I love the numb Elle

I like it

I know a baby Eloise and she's had such beautiful large blue eyes and is always smiley.

It's a lovely name, very pretty.

Rockaby Wed 24-May-17 19:23:12

I think it's lovely. I can't really use it as we already have a Louise and an Ellie in the family, otherwise it would be on my (hypothetical baby) list.

Jooni Wed 24-May-17 19:28:23

I think it's lovely, and I like Elle for short too.

FeedTheSharkAndItWillBite Wed 24-May-17 19:32:19

It's fine smile

Lovely

Gorgeous

I knew an Eloise at uni. Awesome girl. Fab name.

The American books about the girl who lived at the Plaza - sorry

Not keen

I love Eloise, but there are far too many Elllies, Ellas and Elles around.

Why not just call her Eloise?

(I really don't get the MN obsession with planning nicknames).

Lemondrop99 Wed 24-May-17 20:35:55

I'm not keen personally (but I also dislike Louise and Lois so I think it's the sound), but it's a perfectly inoffensive name which I think is unlikely to cause any problems

SuperBeagle Wed 24-May-17 22:11:33

I love Eloise.

I've known two. One was almost always Eloise, with "El" being used occasionally. The other was "Weezy". Always. But she was a baby/toddler, so that might be the reason for that nickname.

I don't think you can plan nicknames, tbh. Unless it's a name like Alexandra or Madeleine which have extremely common, well-known, and virtually automatic nicknames.

I think it's a lovely, pretty name.

AugustCarrot Wed 24-May-17 22:26:11

Love it. My cousin has a 4yo Eloise.

I wouldn't make it into Ellie though- as pp has said their are millions of those!

Family calls out Eloise Lo-lo - erm, that might be an option ?!

harderandharder2breathe Wed 24-May-17 22:46:39

Nice name but I wouldn't use such a boring nn as Ellie, why not just call her Eloise?

DramaAlpaca Wed 24-May-17 22:51:27

Eloise is lovely.

It reminds me of the song by The Damned back in the day <I'm old> It's a nice song, btw, despite the name of the band grin

Beautiful name- it was high on our list!

Susiethetortoiseshellcat Thu 25-May-17 04:23:30

I think Eloise is very pretty. Not so keen on Ellie which will be the inevitable nn as it's a bit boring.

sugarbeep9 Thu 25-May-17 04:54:13

how is it pronounced? A Louise or El was?

sugarbeep9 Thu 25-May-17 04:54:39

or el oys

mollyminniemo Thu 25-May-17 09:46:11

Really irritating, don't like the sound, and has old fashioned, pompous connotations when I hear it. Much prefer Elsie or even Elodie.

chainedtothedesk Thu 25-May-17 10:53:22

I like it. This may seem a daft question but I've always wondered how to pronounce Elouise. Is it:

El-lou-eez (like Louise but with el at the front?)

or

El-lou-ees? (with an s sound rather then z)
