Eloise nicknamed Elsa?

Because of Frozen I’ve really started to like [name_f]Elsa[/name_f], I would use it on its own but [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] is already on my list and I really don’t need another name beginning in [name_f]El[/name_f] on my list (I have [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] and [name_f]Elena[/name_f] as well as [name_f]Isobel[/name_f] and [name_f]Mirabel[/name_f]). Does [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] nicknamed [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] work or is it too much of a stretch? Also my mum sometimes gets [name_f]Elsie[/name_f] (her names [name_f]Elspeth[/name_f]) is an [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] too close to that even if she very rarely gets [name_f]Elsie[/name_f]?


I suppose you mean Frozen? If you think it might be too much of a stretch, it probably is not going to stick, since you might feel odd calling her that. However, I do think it is a possible nickname for [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] and a quite unexpected one, too.

Hahah yeah I did I’ve corrected that I watched them both around the same time so thats why. And thankyou

[name_f]Elsa[/name_f]'s such a lovely name (it’s on my list too), and even though it is similar to [name_f]Elsie[/name_f], I think it’s a gorgeous way to honour your mum.
I think it could stick as a nn, but probably only if the child is introduced to family members as ‘[name_f]Elouise[/name_f], who we call [name_f]Elsa[/name_f]’, and then always called [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] by you. I have a friend who tried to use an unexpected nickname for her son, but because she alternated between his full fn and her chosen nn when addressing him, people just felt free to call him whatever they felt like. On the plus side, all of the nicknames that I know of for [name_f]Elouise[/name_f] are utterly adorable - [name_f]Ella[/name_f], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f], [name_u]Lou[/name_u] - so if you can cope with people possibly calling your daughter one of the other available nicknames, I say [name_f]Elouise[/name_f] nn [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] is perfect.

Thanks [name_f]Claire[/name_f]. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] also honours my mum and sister (her middle name is [name_f]Louise[/name_f])

[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] nn [name_f]Elsie[/name_f] works well imo, so I think [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] nn [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] could work too. As far as being too close to your mom’s name, I wouldn’t worry about it. Most of the time when your mom and daughter are together your mom will be called Mom or Grandma, not [name_f]Elsie[/name_f], so there shouldn’t be any confusion.

I think [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] would make more sense as a nn for [name_f]Eloisa[/name_f].
Though Ebs - maybe my memory is off (and I apologize if that’s the case) but aren’t you a teen-berry and potentially years from really naming a child? I’m just asking because unless you really have to narrow it down “right now” I think you should just keep both on your list. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] and [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] are both great names and why limit your favorites because they are too similar if you aren’t really naming anyone. (I mean lets face it I’m never going to have an [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] at home but I just love both of the names and since we aren’t TTC until well after our wedding this summer I decided to keep both on the list. ) I’d encourage you to keep both for now!!!

@[name_u]Lexie[/name_u] yes I’m 15 so at least ten years away from kids. Thanks I think I will put both on my list

Why would you bother? I don’t understand.

[name_f]Elsa[/name_f] is a name on it’s own so I can’t see it being used as a nickname. It’s the name we plan on using so that might make my opinion biased since we just want to use [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] on it’s own.

I can see [name_f]El[/name_f] or [name_f]Elsie[/name_f] as a nickname for [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], but not [name_f]Elsa[/name_f].

I think Eloise nn Elsa totally works. This combo makes perfect sense in my head.
