Gertrude Eloise

WDYT of [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] or [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloisa[/name]?

I like [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] better because [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloisa[/name] has so many syllables. It’s a nice combo.

not a fan at all, i don’t like either name and they don’t flow well together.

To be honest, I really am not a fan of [name]Gertrude[/name]. It peaked in [name]America[/name] around 1890 to 1910, if I remember correctly (I had researched it a few months ago for someone)
[name]Eloise[/name] is ok.I don’t mind it, but wouldn’t use it

[name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] is much better than [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloisa[/name]. The soft ending of [name]Eloise[/name] makes [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] softer of the ear and have a better flow.[name]Eloisa[/name] feels stilted at the end

Go for what you want, though

I’m sorry, but I honestly hate the name [name]Gertrude[/name]. That said, [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] flows all right.

I prefer the flow of [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloise[/name], personally. I think the nn [name]Gertie[/name] is sweet, but I am afraid that I can’t quite get on the [name]Gertrude[/name] bandwagon, personally.

Here are some other similarly vintage names :
[name]Virginia[/name] (yes, huge teasing potential, but cute nn [name]Ginger[/name])

Good luck!

[name]Eloise[/name]: Gorgeous. Stunning. Beautiful name.
[name]Gertrude[/name]: The name that gets shuffled to MN Status (if lucky), and only then to honor some long-deceased relative.

Sorry for repeats of any already listed!

Although I love classic, sometimes “old-fashioned” names, [name]Gertrude[/name] isn’t one of my favorites. I do like the nickname [name]Trudy[/name] though :] But I would go with [name]Eloise[/name] [name]Gertrude[/name] - I [name]LOVE[/name] the names [name]Eloise[/name] and [name]Louise[/name]!

I like it, but I also prefer [name]Eloise[/name] [name]Gertrude[/name], mainly for nn reasons. I’d rather use [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Elle[/name] and [name]Lula[/name] over [name]Gertie[/name] and [name]Trudy[/name].

My thoughts exactly!

[name]Love[/name] both. Though of the two middle names, I prefer [name]Eloise[/name].

I know it’s not popular, but I really like [name]Gertrude[/name]. [name]Gertie[/name] is adorable.

I think its a great name but be prepared for some seriously negative feedback.

I like the [name]Gertrude[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] combo. :slight_smile: [name]Just[/name] the right amount of syllables, plus I’ve been waiting for someone daring enough to shine the light on poor, neglected [name]Gertrude[/name]. I honestly think it’s very cute, if only folks would give it half a chance.

It has some nice potential nicknames, but I prefer it as-is, in its full glory.

I think that [name]Eloise[/name] or [name]Eloisa[/name] would depend on the last name (if the last name is [name]Evans[/name], then [name]Eloise[/name]; if the last name is [name]Smith[/name], then [name]Eloisa[/name] makes that transition more smoothly…)

I’m on the love-it side for [name]Gertrude[/name]. I think ‘[name]Trudy[/name]’ is a great nickname.

My husband has put forward [name]Gertrude[/name].I love [name]Gertie[/name], but can’t quite get on board with [name]Gertrude[/name].

If you love [name]Gertrude[/name], go for it! One thing you can guarantee is that she wont have a ‘common’ name. It will truly be her own - something which is important to me when naming my children! xx
