Like Faye, Elise sounds like it belongs on a sweet, lovely girl. It is also timeless and classy. One of my favourites!

This name is very pretty and while it works okay as a full name, I prefer it as a nickname for Elisabeth or Elizabeth, which grant the bearer more options in case she finds Elise boring and would rather be a Libby, Beth, Ellie, etc. Plus, it makes me think of that frustrating Princess Elise from Sonic ‘06, but I think that awful game has largely been forgotten by most and is only brought up when necessary, so it isn’t too bad.

“Fur Elise” translates to “For Elise, ” in case you didn’t know.
I think Elise is a beautiful, timeless name, especially for a middle name.

My niece has this name spelled, "Elisse" which I prefer. It is a very pretty, classy name. She too likes her name a lot, especially since it is not very common. This is a timeless classic.

My name is Elise and my mother named me after fur Elise and letters to Elise and many other reasons but my full name is Mary Elise Eggers and I am half Irish and Scottish. My relatives have Mcarthur blood because my mom's name is B Mcarthur and my dad's is R Eggers, so yea, my name is basically German but I'm fully Irish.

This name is always confused with Elyse and Elsie. It is very nice though.

This name is wonderful. It would sound great as a first name, especially as a middle name. I know someone who pronounces it i-LEES. If I ever have a daughter I would probably name her Elise.

My name is Elise and the E is pronounced as an E. Overall I love my name because it's unique and I'm the only person in my class with it. I hate it when I meet someone with the same name. Sometimes I get called "Alise", or "Elsie" by people who can't read. I also jump or turn my head whenever I hear someone say "at least" because they sound so similar. My mother first heard the name Elise from the mom on "Family Ties".

Elise is the French version of Elizabeth, it's not German, yes there is a song called fur Elise by Beethoven but the name itself does not originate from Germany.

Always hated my name growing up... but as an adult I get a lot of comments from others saying that they like it or it's a pretty name. But as a child... I hated my mother... (not really). My hubby plays Fur Elise for me. It's a popular name in books as well, and there is a Lotus Elise in England.

The name sounds like silk when I say. This is one of the reasons I love it. It is a such a cute name but I would rather us it for a character instead of a daughter. But I still love the name!

I've always thought this was a beautiful and graceful name but unfortunately, I went to high school with a girl named Elise who ruined the name for me for a very long time. Thankfully, I never see her anymore so I've slowly started to appreciate the name again.

This is my name but spelled Aliese. It's pronounced the same though. I find the spelling of my name very strange. People always try to call me Alice or Elisa. I decided everyone should just call me Ally.
It's a nice name, just to confusing and gets mixed up a lot.

My name is Elisabeth, but I go by Elise. I live in Germany and I pronounce it e-LEEZ, without the e at the end. Both ways are used here, though.

I have a sister named Elise and I love her! Though, I feel sorry for her because everybody gets her name wrong. Examples: Alise, Elsie, Elies-something like that, etc.

This is a beautiful name, I think. I love names like Eliza, Eli, Elliot, Elias, and this one. And the fact that 'El' is associated with God makes me like the names even more.

This name always reminds me of Princess Elise the Third of Soleanna, from the video game series I'm so addicted to.

This name is beautiful, elegant, and sophisticated. If my wife and I were to have another daughter, I would want her name to be Elise.

How pretty! What a sweet, elegant and strong name. So different and not all trendy like some trashy made-up names I've heard. I'd consider this name if not for my daughter then for my niece if I ever have one! This name gives me an image of a girl who is polite, yet makes her feelings known, is so strong yet so gentle, someone who doesn't give up.

I like this name a lot, like I also like Elsa. For some strange reason, this name always makes me picture some enigmatic, classy-looking, somewhat aloof and cold young woman with long, brown hair and pale skin, in other words, the same things as Elsa, with the exception that Elsa makes me picture a similar woman with blonde hair.

My parents named me Elise after the cure song "LETTER TO ELISE."
I've always hated my name because I get called Elsie all the time. Also when at fast food places that ask for your name and then call out your order by your name, everyone misspronounces Elise so I never know what order is mine.

My name is Elise. I always hated it because people would call me Elsie. Also, everytime someone would say "atleast" I would turn around. So, that got annoying. I ended up loving my name because I don't know anyone else with it. So I love my name. (except for all the misunderstandings)

My name is Aliese, a variant of Elise. The pronunciation is more like "uh-lees" (hence the "A" and not "E") but I still get called "ee-lees". I really like my name because it's unusual.

My parents named me Elise Anna Marie. Elise was after Beethovens "Fur Elise", and the Anna Marie, was after a woman who is said to have been Beethoven's mistress. I'm not sure why I was given this name. Kind of weird. I guess my parents had an obsession with Beethoven.

My only sister is named Christen Elise. If our brother had been a boy, he would have been named Elise something. Elise, a variant of Elizabeth, means, among other things, "Oath of God". My sister, though only eleven, loves her name because it references God -- something I wish my name did. Elise is cute and adorable for a little girl yet elegant and beautiful for a woman. I would name my daughter Elise, but the name is taken in our family.

This is my name. I never have to worry about getting mixed up with other girls at school, because I am the only Elise. Not only is it pretty, it ages well. The only possible downside is constantly getting called Elsie by people who can't read.

I like this name, it's so cute! I knew an adorable little girl with a head of really curly blonde hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. She was really shy and quiet and I think that fits this name perfectly! Her sister was named Audrey, FYI.

We are adopting a baby girl from China late this summer and we both like this name. Sounds pretty and seems like it could work for a little girl and grow with her over time. Looking for something that is not too overdone.

This is a very strong, elegant name. And it's very lady-like and artistic. And yes, Beethoven wrote a symphony called "Fur Elise," but some German words are adapted and/or burrowed from the French language.
