This was my number 1 baby name but because where we are from we have been told her name will be pronounced 'Ela-deh' or everyone will keep asking if her name is Melodie. such a shame cause I am in love with the name it's just everyone else who is so negative, baby due in 9 weeks and still no name!!

Love it!!

It’s a lovely name

Username7521 Sat 20-Nov-21 23:20:34

I know a few elodie and love the name
@Catlovermumof1 I don’t think people will have issues pronouncing it. If you love it go for it!

It's pretty. Also consider Eloise

Don't like

Beautiful - one of my favourites

I think it’s a bit twee along with Melody, sorry. I much prefer Eloise as someone suggested upthread.

Love it! Though speaking from experience, you will find that it confuses/stumps some people, usually older generation. For those people I usually explain it's pronounced like melody without the m.

I personally find it rather twee and a bit nothingy, I feel like it is in the same vein as lots of other girls names and they all merge into one. I don't find it a very beautiful or weighty name for a grown woman.

That said if you like it that's what matters, it's not a dreadful name.

I'm surprised that I quite like this name as it isn't my usual type of preferred name ( those being Elizabeth, Catherine, Eleanor etc). It's quite trendy ( I'm sure I first heard it on The Hills ! ).
But yes I do like it.

* . I don't find it a very beautiful or weighty name for a grown woman.*

Conversely, I find it both of those things. Someone once said to me, it's much harder to choose a girl's name because it has to be pretty enough if she grew up to be a ballerina and strong enough if she wanted to be a nuclear physicist.
I think Elodie is pretty and having spent my life in corporatesville I'd say it's also a weighty name.

Really don't like it - has no meaning or weight. Twee and meh.

Exactly my thoughts on the matter.

It lacks substance, and I wouldn’t want to be called it myself, which is my benchmark.

Yet another El- name. There are currently seven in the top hundred in England and Wales: one of which is Elodie. Just dull to me.

DramaAlpaca Sun 21-Nov-21 02:36:33

I think it's pretty without being at all twee.

I like Eloise too.

WeasilyPleased Sun 21-Nov-21 03:46:02

I much prefer Eloise. I think Elodie is a bit faddy and will date.

garlictwist Sun 21-Nov-21 04:05:49

It's quite a middle aged name in France at least.

Chunkymenrock Sun 21-Nov-21 04:18:37

I just hear L. O. D.

RedRobin100 Sun 21-Nov-21 04:20:02

It’s ok, but a bit twee for me. A bit sickly sweet or something

FestiveMayo Sun 21-Nov-21 06:25:22

I would hate it if it were my name

EishetChayil Sun 21-Nov-21 07:39:51

It occupies the same function as Amelie 10 years ago - British middle class parents who think they're a little bit cool and continental.
