Elspeth should ideally have a brother named Angus, and a thistle whistle for summoning nessies.

Wouldn't it sound like Espe? I think if you say each sound it's too much of a mouthful. Elizabeth is nice, though.

I love this name - beautiful.

I like it
but it is in my memory tainted by a very wet and weedy Brownie leader

My DP's cousin is Elspeth, known as Elsie and I love it. Go for it! If she feels it's too 'different' when she hits her teens and wants to fit in, she can call herself Ellie.

Like Elsie, but dislike Elspeth.

piscesmoon Thu 13-Aug-09 22:09:42

I like Elspeth but not Elsie. I have never known an old lady called Elsie who liked the name!

kalo12 Thu 13-Aug-09 22:12:14

I love Elsie and Elsa, really love them, but Elspeth is a little uptight. She might have a sister called Prudence.

What about Elizabeth, shortened to Elsie ?

Love Elspeth but prefer the nickname Elsa to Elsie.
