Will Helen be lumped in with all the Ella/Ellies? — The Bump

Will Helen be lumped in with all the Ella/Ellies?

DH and I like the name Helen for our DD on the way.  But I know a million Ella and Ellie's under the age of 2, not to mention Stellas, Adeles, and even an "Elle."  So clearly the "el" sound is a popular one!

On paper Helen seems totally different to me, but then when I saying it out loud, it makes me wonder...will Helen get lumped in or confused with all the Ella's and Ellies out there?

  • Personally, I wouldn't lump Helen or Ellen in with all of the Stellas, Ellas and Isabellas out there.

    Helen sounds much less trendy. I like it.

  • Totally different. Helen is an older name to me. More linked with Eleanor, Alice, etc...Ellie and Ella's have become too trendy to be linked to Helen. This would have never crossed my mind.

    Not at all. Helen is beautiful and I think it's an older classic.

  • Love Helen.  Love Helena (like Helen-uh).  No WAY would I categorize it with the names of now...  

    Great choice!

  • I LOVE Helen!  I'm so disappointed my H vetoed it.  I really hope it wouldn't get lumped in with all those Ellas and Ellies...I certainly wouldn't put them together.

  • No. No one will ever call your child Hella or Hellie, or, God forbid, HELLE, so I think you're okay!
