names, names, names....
i dont know what to think,
OK so usually my style of names is not in the the top 50
BUT i am in love with the name ELLA....
it is very popular!!! How do you feel about the name? like it dislike it?
Would you use a name even if its very popular? I just dont want her to have 4 other Ella's in
her class and have to go by Ella R.
tell me your thoughts????
oh' another question....
my family always uses a family name for the middle name, and i want to do that honoring my grandmother and her name is Viola..
does that sound bad? Ella Viola
Please give me honest opinions, i can take it!!!
My style is not "trendy" or Top 100 either! I agree that Ella is pretty though. And I used to like it quite a lot.
Unfortunately, I won't use it now. I don't want a daughter to be "Ella R." like you said (even though if she were mine she'd be "Ella D."). And really, the way I am, I wouldn't care if it were in the top thousand! I don't want my kids to ever meet another person (at least no one else in our hometown) with the same name. My DF's name is (or was, when he was born) "unique". It's Damien. He does get his fair share of "devil" comments but he loves his name. My name, on the other hand, is Lauren Michelle. Talk about an 80's trendy double whammy! Every other girl was named Lauren or Laura and the rest had the middle name Michelle. I got stuck with both. So I do not want my kids to ever have that.
Now I would have to say I dislike it because of the popularity.
Ella Viola is okay for a combo ... I don't absolutely love the sound but it's okay, and you won't use the middle name much anyway.
I do like the name, even though it is popular. If you do use it there is a great chance that there will be more than 1 Ella in her class room... but really, I don't see that as a big deal. She will still be Ella. I'm not a fan of Ella Viola, but since it honors family you should use it anyway.
My name, on the other hand, is Lauren Michelle. Talk about an 80's trendy double whammy! Every other girl was named Lauren or Laura and the rest had the middle name Michelle. I got stuck with both. So I do not want my kids to ever have that.[/b]
I'm Melanie Dawn and was almost Crystal Dawn.
Talk about 80's, I hate my name.
I love Elle and I'm going to use a variant with Elle as the nickname.
Any of these could work for you:
I think maybe even Elizabeth could be an Elle, Ellie, or Ella.
