We found out today that baby #3 is a girl! (I knew it! ) I know I have been here and hashed out names like crazy but I just need help with ONE more thing!

We are 99% sure we want to use the name Claire. We are thinking of doing Claire Elise. What do you think of those two together? Is Elise dated? Do you think it goes with my other two kids' names? (Caleb Isaac and Ella Mae). Also, my husband wants to spell it Claire Elyse rather than Elise. WDYT? If you have any ideas I am all ears!

(I have had issues feeling good about a middle name for Claire. I don't know if it's because it is one syllable or what, but it just seems so difficult!)

I LOVE Claire Elise, spelled like this! I think of Elise as a timeless classic. It is my middle name, and I always get compliments on it. I think the name fits perfectly with your sibset.

Congratulations Tiffany! You sure do make pretty little girls!!! I really like sisters "Ella & Claire" ... as for Elise, I do like the name a lot and I think it flows really well with Claire - I do kind of like the spelling Elyse or Alyse (that's how my cousin's roommate spells it, I think it a lot)

Yay! Another little girl! Chels is right, your Ella is adorable! I love Ella and Claire together. One of my SIL's was thinking of naming her little girl Ella Claire at one time, lol! I love Claire Elise/Elyse. I think Elise works great as you have Mae for Ella's mn and I think they have the same style. Congrats!

Thank you for the input! We actually ALMOST used Claire as a middle name for Ella but then I knew that if I had another daughter I would be sad I couldn't use it as a first name.

I love Claire Elise/Elyse! I love both spellings. I'd probaby choose Elyse only because Claire has an i in the middle so giving Elyse the y in the middle mixes it up

Claire Elise is pretty, I don't think Elise is dated at all!
