Need Input - is Ellie too popular?

We just found out that we are having a girl. We already have 3 boys. We love the name [name]Ellie[/name], but we are afraid that it isn’t unique enough. Our boys’ names are all fairly rare, without being strange. They are ranked around 230, 540, and 740 on the social security list. [name]Ellie[/name] is 137. What do you think? [name]Will[/name] there be multiple Ellies running around at school one day?

[name]Ellie[/name] is getting really popular.

[name]Ellie[/name] may rank in the 100s, but considering that [name]Ella[/name] is #19 and [name]Elizabeth[/name] is #9, and the fact that many Ellas and Elizabeths are nicknamed “[name]Ellie[/name],” well, that’s a whole lot of Ellies!

I personally would keep [name]Ellie[/name] as a nickname for [name]Ella[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Eliza[/name], or [name]Eleanor[/name], because [name]Ellie[/name] on its own feels too insubstantial to me, and won’t age well.

Good luck! :slight_smile:
