Ellietta? Emerietta?

What are every one’s thoughts on the name Ellietta? I love both the nicknames [name]Ellie[/name] and [name]Etta[/name], so I love that I could use both.

Also, what about Emerietta? I don’t know how I would spell this, but it would be said like [name]Emery[/name]+[name]Etta[/name]. Any ideas?

Which do you prefer of the two? Thanks!

I prefer Ellietta. Emerietta is ugly, [name]IMO[/name].

Ellietta is cute. :slight_smile: It may get some flack on here as a “made up” name, but I think it’s pretty and I like how it sounds aloud. Emerietta is a but clunky for my taste. It sounds like [name]Marietta[/name] with an extra syllable up front.

Thanks for the opinions! I just heard Emerietta the other day and have thought about it a bit, not sure if I’d actually use it though, I think I like Ellietta a lot more.

Yeah, I had a feeling about people on here not liking Ellietta because it’s made up (which I usually don’t like names like that at all). I actually came up with it thinking about using a double name with [name]Etta[/name], then [name]Ellie[/name] [name]Etta[/name] popped into my head. It just makes a lot more senese to combine it to one name rather than two seperate names.

I’m not particularly keen on either. Of the two, Ellietta sounds best to my ears, but it feels very insubstantial. For the record, I am generally fine with made up names. I like Eletra for you. There is no reason why you couldn’t use both [name]Etta[/name] and [name]Ellie[/name] as nicknames.

I prefer Emerentia or even Emmaretta (= vaguely reminiscent of [name]Amoret[/name]) to Emerietta, which barely fits into one name. ([name]Emery[/name] [name]Etta[/name] makes a lot more sense, not that I’m recommending it.) By the same token Ellietta seems a bit much (could be some kind of brand, maybe a pharmaceutical product?) – with the similar Liette, a shortening of [name]Juliette[/name], bringing to mind the ol’ “less is more” cliché. I like the suggestion of [name]Elettra[/name]. :slight_smile:

Ellietta is okay, but Emerietta is kind of a tongue twister and comes out kind of like [name]Henrietta[/name] when I say it…

I prefer Ellietta, but honestly, I don’t care for either name.

I don’t care for either name. [name]Both[/name] are too contrived for me.

[name]Both[/name] are too contrived for me, as well. But I suppose Ellietta is better. [name]Both[/name] sound very made-up to me, and I’m personally just not a fan. I guess Ellietta at least is pleasant-sounding; Emerietta just sounds bad :frowning:

I guess if I had to choose, I would say ellietta. But i have to agree that both feel contrived. I will also add that even if you have a name with two nickname options, only one is used (unless they are close, like liv/livia for [name]Olivia[/name]. I just don’t see both [name]Ellie[/name] and [name]Etta[/name] sticking, so I wouldn’t choose a name to achieve both names, if that makes sense.

[name]Etta[/name] is nice, [name]Ellie[/name] is way overused and the other one is too mish mashed to even spell out. [name]Amoret[/name] as suggested is pretty.

I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] the name Ellietta. I’m actually planning on naming my daughter Ellietta Jaylor and nicknaming her EJ. I like Emerietta too but I like Ellietta more.:slight_smile:

Ellietta is the better of the two definitely but I’m not a huge fan of smooshed-together names. I understand the appeal but when I say them both out loud they don’t sound like proper, substantial names. Also when I say Emerietta it sounds like I’m mispronouncing [name_f]Henrietta[/name_f], could just be the Aussie accent though!

[name_u]Love[/name_u] Ellietta, but Emerietta is just weird.
