I voted [name]Ella[/name].

[name]Ella[/name] is lovely, but for me is just way too popular.

It depends on what you’re looking for in a name.

The benefits of [name]Bethany[/name] is that it is uncommon and provides a variety of nicknames ([name]Beth[/name], [name]Bette[/name], [name]Betty[/name], [name]Annie[/name]).
On the other hand, [name]Ella[/name] is short, shouldn’t have issues with pronunciation, and modern.

But I personally chose [name]Bethany[/name] because as lrmum has expressed, I feel that [name]Ella[/name] is too popular.

I voted for [name]Ella[/name], it’s so sweet and elegant even though it’s quite popular.

I prefer [name]Bethany[/name] since it has more nn potential and is prettier imo.

I live in a French speaking area where [name]Elle[/name] is a pronoun so I really don’t understand the trend of naming children [name]Elle[/name] or [name]Ella[/name] (unless as a nn). You might as well name your daughter “she”.

Throwing popularity aside, I prefer [name]Ella[/name], however it’s very popular now. I’ve just never liked [name]Bethany[/name] much, but it’s not a bad name - I just like [name]Ella[/name] better.

I prefer [name]Ella[/name] even though it’s very popular now. Never like [name]Bethany[/name] really.

I voted [name]Bethany[/name]…it is refreshing to hear, and to me it feels like a more solid name than [name]Ella[/name].

I like [name]Bethany[/name] better… I also like [name]Bethan[/name] :slight_smile:

I like [name]Bethany[/name] much better. I am not a fan of [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Emma[/name], [name]Emily[/name] names.

I voted [name]Ella[/name]!

I prefer [name]Bethany[/name] in every way.

[name]Ella[/name] is really popular but I just don’t like the name, [name]Bethany[/name]. I don’t know why.

[name]BETHANY[/name]! [name]Ella[/name] is beautiful, but very boring due to popularity. [name]Don[/name]'t do to your daughter what my mom did to me ( i was a [name]Melissa[/name] born in 70s).

[name]Ella[/name] just seems like a nn to me and it’s too popular right now for me to choose it.

[name]Bethany[/name] is a sweet, soft name with a lot of nn’s and as it’s been mentioned, it’s a refreshing choice compared to [name]Ella[/name].
