Elliott for a girl?

We had been pretty set on Emmeline for our July baby. My husband mentioned Elliottt (nickname Elle) and I like it, but I’m not sure if it’s a girl name. Thoughts?

Re: Elliott for a girl?

  • Elliott is a boys name that has become trendy on girls. Emmeline is a much better choice.

  • Emmeline is WAY better.  You could still call her "elle" if that's the draw of Elliott - I don't think that's too much of a stretch.

  • No. Please don't.

  • Ugh. Yes let’s be super trendy and slap a boy name on a girl and think it’s so unique and awesome


  • Sounds like a resounding thumbs down! Thanks for everyone's input

  • I agree - Emmeline is much better than Elliott for a girl IMO.

    I’m with pps. If you want Elle, you could also do just Elle or Eleanor (my preference).

    Negative. 
  • It's really trendy so she won't be the only one.

  • Maybe look for similar sounding names. My sister's husband has a niece named Evelette. Which I think is pretty and unique. We're having a boy and are considering Elliot for the middle name. I think it's better as a boy name!

  • I guess Elliotte is acceptable for a girl. I personally dont like it. There are so many feminine Elle names that I prefer. 

    Elle
    Ella 
    Elenora 
    Elena 
    Eliana 
    Elsa 
    Elsinore- it's the name of a Lake around here. I think its interesting lol 
    Ellen - I kinda like the simplicity of Ellen 
    Elene 

  • I actually think the boy name for a girl thing is totally okay and sometimes can be wonderful. However, Elliot isn't my favorite boy name for a boy or a girl.

    Emmeline is a beautiful name. Em, Emmie, Emma, El, Ellie are all possible nicknames too for that.
  • @captainanna - yes and it's so "totally ok" and "sometimes wonderful" to name your son Allison, Megan,  Lilly.  Um no! 

  • It is not cute, not adorable, not hip, and certainly not kind to your daughter.
