baby girl name

What do you think of the name Elliot for a baby girl? DH and I love the nickname Ellie, but we want the child to have a grown-up sounding name that she could use when she's older. I do not like Ella, and I don't want to use Elizabeth. I'm thinking Elliot Catherine.

We do not know that our baby is a girl, but we are stuck on girls' names. We have narrowed our boy names down to two. Our older daughter's name is Julia. Any name suggestions are welcome!

I have a girl in my class named Eliana (Ellie-Anna). To me Elliot sound too much like a boy's name but I'm sure it will fit your cutie to be if that's what you decide .

I knew an Ellen who went by Ellie and an Eloise who went by Ellie. I like Elliot, but in my mind it is a firmly male name.

I LOVE Elliott as a girl name. I love a lot of boy names for girls though (Parker, Carter, etc). So my vote is YES! Go for it!

I really find Elliot to be a boy's name. It could be awful for her to always have to deal with that.
Like a previous person said, Ellen could be a lovely name. Ellen Catherine sounds nice. It is also very classy and she could be called Ellie for short.

I agree with others that Elliot is masculine to me and I have only known boys with the name. It is not my style but I know many who do not mind naming a girl a name that is traditionally more of a male name.

I also agree that Eloise could have the nickname Ellie. I have an aunt Eleanor and she goes by Ellie. You could also just do Elle and call her Ellie.

The Ellies I know and have taught are either Ellen or Eleanor. A grown-up name for the law office door or medical diploma, but a cute nickname while growing up.

I always associate the name Elliot with the movie E.T., and the mechanical way the alien says Ell-ee-it. I'd worry that mean kids might say that to her. (I'm dealing with mean girl crap now in my class so that's forefront in my mind. Sorry.)

I like Ellen, too! I was talking to 2 of the girls at work, and they both hated Ellen. I have always thought it to be a pretty name. I was disheartened to hear them bash the name so badly.

When I see the name Elliot, I immediately think of a boy. If you like Ellie and want something more grown up and unusual, what about Eleanor? I grew up with a few girls with that name who went by Ellie for short.

Elliot seems too boy for me. I love that someone suggested Elliana (Ellie-Ona). And calling her Ellie for short. That sounds much more feminine.

If you want her to be called Ellie then name her Ellie.
Elliot is cute too for a girl. My own DD is named Ellen and was never called Ellie as a nickname because Ellen has the same number of letters.

Why have a name and then a nickname? Ellie is very cute and is a friend's grandaughter's name--no more formal name--she's Ellie. So, so cute!

When naming my children, I always tried to think about how they would like their name when they were teenagers. I gave them names that were different, but not too different. How about spelling it Elliet or Elliette?

I love the name Elliot paired with Catherine for your little one if a girl. And if you love it go for it, don't worry about anyone else liking it or thinking it is a boy's name. My daughter is Michael-yes Michael and no one in school or life has made an unfavorable comment about her name. And she loves her name. She says she can't think of any other name she would want. Every name has a story.

Too masculine
Old 10-27-2013, 01:52 PM

She'll go all her life with people being confused about her gender due to her name--teachers, doctors, lawyers, etc. She'll have to explain herself all the time, and correct all the "misters."

However, I love the name Ellie!! I see nothing wrong with just naming her Ellie.

I think Eleanor is a good, strong name. A name fit for a queen. Eleanora (Ellenora?) would work, too. I also like Ellen--it is a gentle, sweet, but also strong name.

I agree with the PP, she will have to spend her life explaining that she is a "she" and not a "he".

As someone who grew up with a long, complicated last name that required explanation, I can speak to how aggravating and annoying it was until I finally got married. Plus, this year, I have a BOY named LINDSEY in my class, and for the first three days of school we all wondered why this "girl" was missing from our classes but still on our roster. He wisely goes by his middle name

If you are certain, I would make the spelling as feminine as possible: Ellliette...or somethign similar.

I also agree that Ellie is a beautiful name, why not just go with Ellie?

There was a show on TLC called Quints by Surprise about a family with multiples. The older daughters name was Elliot. I like it. I have seen it being spelled Elliette for a girl.

I babysit for a girl whose name was Eleanor but went by Elly. I kinda like Elliot for a girls name but can see it being more of a boys name too. That being said my sisters friends name is Brett Micheal (her parents really wanted a boy) she grew up in the 90s with having a very boy sounding name and didn't have any trouble with it. I say go with what you like best!

I have an Elliot this year and she is so lovely. She really is the kind of girl you'd order 10 of, in addition to being cute as can be. She made me love the name. Elliot made the top 10 list for names that are being used for both boys and girls btw. Because of such, I don't think she'd ever have to explain her name.

On the TV show Scrubs, Elliot was the name of the female doctor.

I like it and think it is cute. If you were worried about it being traditionally a boys name, you could go with Marielle, Janelle, Brielle, or something like that and use "Ellie" as her nickname.

My daughter's nickname is part of her name, but not the first part. We liked the long version of her name but not the nickname with the first part of her name, so we started the nickname we liked when she was young, before school and it stuck.

Congratulations!!

Elliot for a girl? Absolutely not.
Old 10-27-2013, 02:25 PM

Please no. Elliot is not pretty at all for a girl's name. It also sounds terrible with Julia, which is a very feminine, very beautiful classic name. Elliot is classic for a boy, but sounds trendy and masculine when used for a girl. They don't match at all.

Plus, Elliot is not a usable name for an adult woman because it sounds like a man's name. Most women are not going to enjoy having to use a man's name for the rest of their professional career.

There are also people who will make an assumption throughout this child's life that you really wanted a boy instead of a girl (I would wonder this, for sure).

Eleanor, Ellen, or even just the name Ellie as a first name would be better than Elliot for a girl.

Elliot would be great if you have a boy, though!

I don't care for girls to have names that sound like boys' names. That's just my opinion.

I LOVE the name Elle. It's a girly name, but it's also a cute grown-up name. You could call her Ellie as a young girl, although Elly May was on The Beverly Hillbillies and she was an adult.

I know two females named Elliott. In both cases, it's a family name. It's one mother's maiden name, and the middle name of someone in the family a few generations back.

I love the name Elliot. I haven't considered it for a girl before, but I think it would work. Maybe with the alternate spelling like pp's suggested, Elliette. I love the nickname Ellie! And I totally get where you are coming from, I have a nickname picked out if baby 2 is a girl but I haven't decided on the full name.

If you like the name Elliot for a girl, then by all means use it. Don't worry about anyone else says. I know you asked for opinions but please don't let those that dislike it change your mind. I personally think it is different and unique!

I know one female Elliot, who goes by Ellie. She is beautiful. I love the name Ellie. I also think of Elliot more of a boy's name, but there seems to be a trend for unisex names.

I really like it. I've never personally known a male Elliot, but one of my favorite students of all time was a girl named Elliot. Her mom called her Ellie, but we always called her Elliot, and she always wrote her name as Elliot. I never heard of her being teased or people being confused because of her name. Many names nowadays are suitable for either gender. There's nothing wrong with naming your girl Elliot, if that's the name you like.

Aww, I actually do think Elliot would be cute for a girl, but I wouldn't go for it because:

-she'll have to explain she's a girl

-if you like the nickname Ellie, the nickname might not happen naming her Elliot (I have a Charlotte and wanted to call her Charlie, guess what we all call her Charlotte)

-Elliot and Julia sound like a boy and girl to me (sorry just being totally honest!)


That being said, my youngest daughter's name is Elle Catherine so I like where you're going with this One of my other favorite names was Elise

If you like Elliott for a girl go for it. However, I disagree about changing the spelling. I would stick with the traditional spelling. You don't want to have to explain that she is a girl AND she has a kre8ive spelling of her name.

I personally would go with a more feminine name to fit with Julia, so I found these names for you! (I am a bit of a life-long name nerd, so feel free to message me if you want to bounce more ideas off!)
- Elle: simple, classic, and super cool bonus points because it's a palindrome!!!!
- Elsa: adorable yet sophisticated!
- Aubrielle- taking a different spin using the last syllable instead of the first!
- Brielle: a bit shorter, but same idea!
- Stella: This uses a middle syllable, and Stella is really hip right now!
- Elodie: Rhymes with Melody, a beautiful french name meaning flower!

That being said, I think Ellie is perfectly fine standing alone!! She definitely won't be the only one!

and SMH I am sorry you asked for opinions, but people finding other names for you is just a little over the top.

The name my DD picked for my GS was not a favorite of mine BUT as I told her--like I am going to love him less because of his name.

So for you. Your child, your name, your choice go with your choice. And if her name is Elliot, do you think people would say EWWWW I don't like your name.

Trying to say this without causing hard feelings.

I recently read an article about George Stephanopoulos and his family. One of his DD's name is Elliott Anastasia. I would not think of Elliott as a girl's name, but in reading the article I liked the sound Elliott as a girl's name.

I would name my child whatever I wanted, after all others name their children what they wanted.

Enjoy your baby, as previous pp said, your not going to not love the child because of her name

I prefer something like Eliana. I like Ellen ok (I have a good friend with that name). Elliott can be cute for a girl, but it's not amongst my favorite names. Eliana and Julia (love that name!) sound great together, imo

Don't really like the name Elliot for a boy or girl. I do love the name Aubrielle as a previous post suggested. Then you could still go with Ellie. Good luck with your decision.
