Trying to decide between top three names!

Looking for feedback on our top three favorites for our baby girl!

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]

[name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] [name_f]Paige[/name_f]

[name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]

I don’t have a huge preference when it comes to spelling… I know that [name_f]Elise[/name_f] is the traditional spelling but I also think [name_f]Elyse[/name_f] is pretty. For [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] I know that [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] is the most traditional way to spell it, but I want people to know it’s pronounced Mad-eh-[name_f]LIN[/name_f] instead of Mad-eh-[name_f]LINE[/name_f]. Suggestions welcome!

For me [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] is [name_u]LYN[/name_u], [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] is [name_f]LINE[/name_f], and [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] is [name_m]LEN[/name_m].

I adore, in order:


I personally feel neutral about [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u].

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is so chic! I love it.

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is by far my favourite of your choices, though I think they’re all nice. I personally prefer [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] over [name_f]Elyse[/name_f] and [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] because I generally strongly dislike names with the letter y in them (I don’t like how it looks) and also I’m definitely extremely traditional when it comes to spelling in general. That being said I think either spelling of either name would work, so it’s really up to you.

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is pretty.

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] — Stunning! Chic and feminine. I love it. [name_f]Elyse[/name_f] brings the wow factor way down in my opinion. This is my favorite from the list.

[name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] [name_f]Paige[/name_f] — It’s pretty and very 2017. I usually favor original spellings, but [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] has been used popularly in the US since 1900 and probably before, so I do not consider it a trendy, made-up spelling (e.g. [name_f]Madilyn[/name_f], [name_f]Madalynn[/name_f], etc.) [name_f]Paige[/name_f] I don’t love as much because I think it takes away from the classic beauty of [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f]. [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], maybe?

[name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] — I know that [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] is “unisex” but I’ve given it to the girls. It hasn’t even been in the top 1000 for boys since the early 2000’s. I think it’s very cute and spunky! It sort of runs into [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], though. [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f], [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Victoria[/name_f], [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] are all really great too.

You can’t go wrong with any of these!

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f].

What about [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] or [name_f]Audra[/name_f] instead of [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u]?

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is beautiful!

I love [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], but am not a huge fan of [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] in comparison–small difference, but I’ve known several who [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] it on a boy, and those are stronger ties to me than people who use [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] for a girl (or are an [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] that is a girl), so I tend to see it as rather masculine. Nothing wrong with it in general, though. :wink: I have a unisex name and rather hate it, so I personally wouldn’t use a unisex name on a girl, but that should hardly prevent others from doing so. :wink:

[name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] is nice, but I do prefer the [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] spelling. Then again, I love how [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] sounds in [name_m]French[/name_m]. Sort of like MAD(e)-lehn. I agree I’m not fond of the ‘y’, so if I wasn’t using [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f], I’d use [name_f]Madeline[/name_f], mainly because I do like that -line ending. [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] prn. -lyn doesn’t make much sense to me, but I suppose I could be the only one.

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] gets my vote! She’s super sweet, and I adore both [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Elise[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

I like [name_f]Elise[/name_f]. I think [name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] would be nice.

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] is really pretty & sounds chic!

I like [name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]. I also like [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] but prefer the spelling [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f].

I much prefer the classic [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] spelling, and if you used that it would be my first choice. With your spellings [name_f]Elise[/name_f] is my preference. I also like the spelling [name_f]Elyse[/name_f], perhaps even prefer it.

I dislike [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] and think it’s not in the same class as [name_f]Elise[/name_f] or [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f]. [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] however is lovely.

[name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] [name_f]Paige[/name_f] was probably my favourite one of the three. My second would be [name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]. I like the name [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] but not too fussed on [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. I also prefer the spelling [name_f]Aubree[/name_f] :).

In order of preference…
[name_u]Aubrey[/name_u] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] (only like this spelling)
[name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] [name_f]Paige[/name_f] (prefer this spelling)

[name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] or [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] (this spelling)as per PPs opinions.
[name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Alicia[/name_f] must have been popular for girls around the 25 over age in our area. Like you I love the look of [name_f]Elyse[/name_f] -I am not a huge fan of y substitution, but I do like this one . However in saying the name must have been popular about 25 years ago, many of these young women are [name_f]Elyse[/name_f] and I have come the circle back to prefer the classic simplicity of [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and less spelling
corrections I imagine.
Also prefer [name_f]Audra[/name_f] or [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] to [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u].

My favorite is [name_f]Elise[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f].
