Unique names to get the nickname Elly/Ellie

My husband loves the nickname [name]Elly[/name], and so I am trying to think of ways to get that as a nickname as neither one of us would want to use just that as a first name. Obvious options are [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Ellen[/name], Etc. I came across [name]Annabel[/name] and it got me thinking outside the box. [name]Annabel[/name] could definitely result in a nickname of [name]Elly[/name], but I don’t like the [name]Belle[/name]/[name]Bella[/name] endings. Are there any other names you can think of that may result in [name]Elly[/name]? [name]Adele[/name] is out we have a neice named [name]Adalyn[/name] and I feel that it’s too close. Thanks in advance!

[name]Elliana[/name] (pronounced elly-awna) Maybe it is spelled [name]Eliana[/name] ?

Elowen/ Elowyn

I have a list here: http://appellationmountain.net/2008/05/25/getting-to-ellie/

I’m a huge fan of [name]Elspeth[/name], [name]Ellery[/name], and [name]Elodie[/name].

TBH I think these names are way too pretty to have the NN [name]Ellie[/name] (which is lovely its just uber common) but here goes:



[name]Eliora[/name] is my favourite and I haven’t seen it mentioned yet.

I do like [name]Raphaela[/name] and [name]Raziela[/name] as well but I’m not sure I’d call them [name]Ellie[/name]?


I agree with emelis. Taking a unique name and just calling her a super common name like [name]Ellie[/name] is a waste. But whatever, not my kid


I probably wouldn’t call her [name]Elly[/name] either - I’m not big on nicknames, but my husband likes it (as I said in my original post). I think my favorites are [name]Elena[/name] (pronounced like [name]Ellen[/name]-uh), [name]Elsa[/name], and [name]Celeste[/name]. Thanks everyone!

[name]How[/name] about [name]Felicity[/name]?

Good suggestion on [name]Felicity[/name], I didn’t think of that. Unfortunately, my husband has said that he hates the name [name]Felicity[/name] when it’s come up in other name conversations :frowning:

[name]Vendela[/name] perhaps?:slight_smile:

[name]Eleanora[/name], [name]Ellery[/name], Eleison, [name]Elodie[/name], [name]Eloise[/name], [name]Stella[/name], [name]Cordelia[/name]

I really like [name]Elena[/name] for you! So pretty.
