Comments for the name Elle


Comments for ELLE:

Deriving ultimately from Helena, Elle has become an independent form in Estonian. Since there are no such things as silent letters in Estonian, unlike in French it is pronounced "Ell-eh". Both E-s sound the same, like the e in "exit".

Elle also means "she" or "her" in French.

Elle is also the short form of other names that begin with "El" such as Eleanor.

My cousin's name is Elle, but she pronounces it like Ellie. I think it's a nice, modest name, but I really prefer it as a nickname.

The name seems a little plain by itself. Mixed with another name would be a different circumstance (example Mary Elle).

My name is Ellinor and my friends gave me the nickname Elle but it's pronounced EL-uh. That being okay since I live in Sweden but it doesn't sound right in the English language, so I always introduce myself as Elle with the pronunciation EL when I'm out travelling and meeting new people.

My name is Elle but it's pronounced Ellie. The last "e" in my name is actually with an accent but the accent isn't pronounced. It's very weird but I can only thank my parents for giving me an unusual name!

This name means SHE in french, it's like calling your kid Him. Please, Elle Woods was cool, but please.

I love the name. It's very pretty and simple. It's one of my favorite names.
-- candleburn  11/5/2006
I LOVE this name, but if you use it, you would need to add some flair! So, I would use Ella or Ellie instead. :-0

I named my daughter AnnaSophia Mary Elle. She goes by Elle. I was going to have Elle as her first name, but I didn't think it was "whole" enough. It is such a pretty name though so I just couldn't pass it up.

I think this name is simple, feminine, and beautiful.
-- nothingshortoftragic  12/31/2006
This is my nickname. I'm called Ellie (EL-lee) or Elle (EL-leh). I think it's very cute.
-- elliebeth  1/30/2007
I want my people to call me Elle. My name is Elizabeth, so it's fairly boring. I think Elle isn't as common and a cool shortname for Elizabeth.

Elle Driver, a character in Kill Bill, bears this name.

My name is Ellen, and I often use 'Elle' on the internet.
-- eguo0124  2/9/2008
I love this name. Because it's mine! I pronounce it "L". In my actuality it's short for Danielle, but I've been Elle since I was very young. Elle Yeah!
-- fancyfeet  4/11/2008
Too minimalist, with a sense of being incomplete. Sounds weird in French-speaking countries and areas, as well as to anyone who can speak the language. The name rather makes me picture a beautiful, rich, yet arrogant young woman.
-- slight night shiver  4/22/2008
This strikes me as a rather unusual and slightly interesting name, but one should never use it unless it is short for somebody's full name or something.

Elle Bishop on Heroes is played by Kristen Bell.
-- Veronica_Mignon  11/16/2008
Sounds very strange to anyone who knows French, even someone who's terrible at it like me. Much prefer Ellie.

There was an awesome Alternative Rock band called Elle Milano. Sadly, they broke up in 2008.
-- DestructoGirl  7/9/2009
It's cute!
-- italiannames  1/3/2010
Cute, but I'd only use it as a nickname because I personally find Elizabeth, Eleanor, Ella, Elena, etc. to be prettier and more mature. Also, as someone who has studied some French, I just could not name my daughter after a pronoun. ("Hello, this is my daughter, Elle, and my son, Il") If you want a cute French name for your girl, there are some much better options that are not lifted straight out of the grammar book.

Can also be pronounced EL-ee. A friend of mine has the given name of Elizabeth Quinn, but goes by Elle. It's like Ellie, without the "i."
-- mariej2  4/18/2010
A cute nickname for a more complete-sounding name like Ella or Elly or Elizabeth. Also if someone was name Elle, people would probably have a difficult time pronouncing it.
-- Jesussaves7193  6/18/2010
This name is HORRENDOUS as a stand alone name! Too minimalist. It's cute as a nickname for Eleanor or Elizabeth.
-- Chrila96  12/14/2010
I love this name, I'm not French so I don't care if it's a word in French. If people are using Belle in the US as a name why not Elle? I think Elle is elegant and pretty.

I have friends who named their daughter Elle. Elle is very cute and absolutely sweet. I prefer this to the extremely popular Ella. I find this name very unique without being a made up name.

I named my little precious daughter Elle and she is nothing other than an Elle! A beautiful little blue eyed, fair hair, tanned skinned girl came from a family full of brunettes and brown eyes. A unique name for a unique girl. She doesn't need any glamorizing with her name. I am so glad I didn't go for the common Ella or Ellie. The only downfall, when I loudly call her name in public it sounds like Im grunting hehe.
-- Tamara Pseftra  4/25/2013
The name Elle can be pronounced in two different ways: like the commonplace name for the letter "L" (in other words, EL), or similarly as one would pronounce the name Ellie. (I should know, because I nearly got named this alternate version.)

I don't really think its that bad that it means 'she' in French, Ella means her in Spanish but it's still ├╝ber trendy (granted there is a different pronunciation). Despite this name being modern and my general dislike for modern names, there's nothing that bad about the sound of this. It's just very strange as a full first name. It sounds like you're saying the letter l or like whatever you were gonna say was cut short. My cousin Elizabeth is sometimes called this, and I think it's a cute nickname for names beginning in el, but as a full name it's a little strange. Even Elle fanning's real name is Mary Elle.

This is far too short sounding in my ears. I don't like this as a standalone name. It's okay(ish) as a nickname for Eleanor, Ellie, Eliana etc. Or for any names beginning with the letter 'L' e.g. Linda, Lara, Lola, Lisa...
-- LoveHeartKawaii  8/18/2014
Too common as a name ending, like Gabrielle, Michelle or Danielle, and sounds too much like the letter l.
