I dislike this name, it's unbalanced and it looks like a big spelling mistake.

I think some commenters have gotten the idea that this is a cre8tive spelling of Alice. Actually, both have been historically used. This is a Welsh variant and I think it's lovely.

This name isn't as modern or trendy as the spelling might suggest. Famous bearers include Alys of France, Countess of the Vexin (1160 – c. 1220), Canadian singer Alys Robi (1923-2011), and British TV presenter Alys Fowler (born 1978).

I much prefer this spelling to the more commonplace 'Alice.' I think it looks prettier for some reason. Lovely name spelt either way!

I agree with a previous comment - this is the modern Welsh form of Alice, deriving from Alis. My Welsh cousin bears this name.

This is my middle name and I love it. I think it is more creative than Alice and is really unique. Teachers have always, always spelled my name Alice. It gets to be a drag!

I think this is an adorable version of Alice - more balanced and without the "lice" element that makes me think of woodlice!

I agree, it gives the impression that the parents didn't pay too much attention in grade school English classes.
