Names that end in "elle" and....Cecilia.

My spouse likes the nickname “[name_f]Elle[/name_f]” and so I am brainstorming names that this could be an obvious nickname for.

[name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f]
[name_f]Annabelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]

What others can you guys think of?

Also, what comes to mind when you think of a little girl with the name “[name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]”? “[name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f]”? What about “[name_f]Golda[/name_f]” - too old lady?

Thanks thanks!

[name_f]Ellen[/name_f]
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f]
[name_f]Elodie[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmanuelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Noelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Joelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Marielle[/name_f]

I think [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] is lovely. It’s my favourite of the three names. [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] has never really appealed to me, but objectively it’s a fine name. I can easily picture either name on a little girl. I’ve never heard of anyone named [name_f]Golda[/name_f] except [name_f]Golda[/name_f] [name_m]Meir[/name_m], the Israeli Prime Minister. Personally, I’m not keen on the sound.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions!

My tops are [name_u]Simone[/name_u], [name_f]Claire[/name_f], [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]. Maybe [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f] too.

My spouse likes [name_u]Alex[/name_u], [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], [name_f]Elle[/name_f], [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f], and [name_f]Margo[/name_f].

We both like [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] but worry about its popularity.

We have another daughter named [name_f]Eve[/name_f] and a two-syllable last name that starts with L.

[name_f]Golda[/name_f] was one my mom threw out. [name_m]Don[/name_m]'t think I could do it. Other than that, my mom’s suggestions are all common dog names: [name_f]Zoe[/name_f], [name_f]Sadie[/name_f], etc. But glad she’s trying! Occasionally she throws out some retro 80s names that NO ONE is considering these days. Funny.

I think [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] and [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] are lovely, but I much prefer [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f]. I’m not a big fan of [name_f]Golda[/name_f] to be honest, it feels a little incomplete imo?

What about

[name_f]Isabelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Arielle[/name_f]
[name_f]Annabelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Bluebell[/name_f]
[name_f]Arabelle[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]
[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_f]Elissa[/name_f]
[name_f]Chantelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Brielle[/name_f]
[name_f]Celeste[/name_f]
[name_f]Christabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Danielle[/name_f]
[name_f]Ellie[/name_f]
[name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_u]Ellery[/name_u]
[name_f]Emmanuelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Helen[/name_f]
[name_f]Giselle[/name_f]
[name_f]Mirabelle[/name_f]

Or you could just use [name_f]Elle[/name_f]?

[name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] fits right in to being a 2010’s child. I attribute its boost in the social consciousness from [name_m]Jim[/name_m] and [name_f]Pam[/name_f]'s [name_f]Cecelia[/name_f] (from The Office). I have no trouble imagining this delicate, unique name on a modern day child. It has the perfect balance of vintage trendiness as well as being off the radar juuust enough to not become ubiquitous and over-used. Because of this, I can picture a lot of little girls called [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] running around. A lot more parents are considering it these days so it isn’t tied to a particular image for me.

[name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] has been around for a bit longer than [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] has. I picture a teenaged/young adult named [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] more easily than a young child. But maybe that’s a good thing! Names are supposed to carry us through all stages of life. A young [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] is playful and definitely girly (I’m thinking [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] [name_f]Chanel[/name_f] here!)

[name_f]Golda[/name_f] I’m really not a fan of. It doesn’t sound very believable as a name- more like something [name_m]Frank[/name_m] L. Baum would construct for a character from the [name_m]Wizard[/name_m] of [name_m]Oz[/name_m].

If he loves the nickname “[name_f]Elle[/name_f]”, here are some possibilities that may be right up your alley…

[name_f]Mirabel[/name_f] / [name_f]Mirabelle[/name_f] (look up the meaning; it means marvelous/wonderful!)
[name_f]Arielle[/name_f] (means lion!)
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Giselle[/name_f]
[name_f]Roselle[/name_f]
[name_f]Raquel[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] / [name_f]Elena[/name_f] / [name_f]Helena[/name_f]

A few more possibilities;

[name_f]Amabelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Arabelle[/name_f]/[name_f]Arabella[/name_f]
[name_f]Arielle[/name_f]/[name_f]Ariella[/name_f]
[name_f]Brielle[/name_f]/[name_f]Briella[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliana[/name_f]
[name_f]Elora[/name_f]
[name_f]Elsa[/name_f]
[name_f]Elspeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Esmeralda[/name_f]
[name_f]Estrella[/name_f]
[name_f]Isabelle[/name_f]/[name_f]Isabella[/name_f]
[name_f]Luella[/name_f]
[name_f]Michelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosabelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f]

I love Cecila and [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] - would probably go with nicknames [name_f]Celia[/name_f] or [name_u]Gabby[/name_u]/[name_f]Ella[/name_f]/[name_f]Elle[/name_f] while she was young.

A lot of the names I thought have already been but I just wanted to say, I think if you and your husband like [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] go for it. Personally I only know of a few girls with that name. But I don’t think the popularity of a name should stop you from naming your child it. I have a very common name and when I was in primary school in years 3-6 there were 5 of us with the same name, in my grade. But it never really bothered me much. If it’s the name for you name your child it. Anyway this is just my personal opinion:)

I love [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]. I think it’s timeless and fresh at the same time. It has the classic feel of [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f], without being as common. It’s a great name, and I’m also a huge fan of the song [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] by [name_m]Simon[/name_m] and Garfunkel, so that’s a plus!

[name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] feels very dated to me. It reminds me of names from the 80s/90s, like [name_f]Jennifer[/name_f] or [name_f]Kylie[/name_f], even though it’s not as common.

I’m personally not a fan of [name_f]Golda[/name_f].

Most of the [name_f]Elle[/name_f] names have been mentioned but i can add [name_f]Janelle[/name_f], Jodelle, and Jomelle which all sound kind of oldfashioned. [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] is one of my favorite names so i would choose it. It is beautiful & fun to pronounce.

[name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f]
[name_f]Annabelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_u]Eloise[/name_u]

What others can you guys think of?

[name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] is gorgeous, and iam not a fan of [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]. I prefer [name_f]Cecily[/name_f].
