I like it.

It's lovely. No more old-ladyish than the ubiquitous Lily or May.

I love it.
I know of 2 recent baby girls; Sylvie & Ivy and I love those names too.

It's lovely, very pretty

No, it's lovely. I met a six week old Elsie recently and thought at the time what a good choice of name.

It's lovely, especially as there's a good family connection on both sides. Elseba is gorgeous, too (but this is the woman who wanted to call her DD Elphaba... vetoed by, well, everyone with a brain, really).

Elsie is great. I'm all for cool old-lady names. And what a lovely way to honour both your Grans

Love it!!! [dd3 is Elizabeth and I wanted to shorten it to Elsie, but she decided on Betty!] Go for it!

Elsie is a fantastic name. Actually, if We had not decided that our dcs would have arabic names that would be Dd1's name! It reminds me of "Fairy tale a true story".

I love that name!! Friends of ours just names their DD Elsie and I though at the time, what a cool name!!! Go for it!

Love it

I love it too! Also really like Elsa. If I ever have a little girl [hopeful emoticon] she will either be Elsa or Sylvie.

I like it too but had you thought about Elsa shortened to Elsie? It's just a bit more formal sounding in case she needs it when she's grown up.

Like the name - but it does sound like someone from the Chalet School - which may or may not be a good thing.

I also like Elsa shortened to Elsie, and I like it even more knowing it has a family connection (I'm like that, me).

gladders Mon 06-Jul-09 12:13:13

i know a wonderful 4 yo called Elsie and she's fantastic - I say go for it - it's a bit different too

Firawla Mon 06-Jul-09 13:03:29

Alot of the "old" names are being used these days,I think Elsie is nice and would be fine.
