Comments for ELOISE:

Actually, Eloise is derived from Louis/Louisa, meaning "Famous Warrior." It's a beautiful and elegant name, really, and pleasantly uncommon.

I think this name is very pretty and although it's uncommon, it's also conventional.

Eloise is a nice name. Though all the Eloise's I know are horrible people, I wonder if that has anything to do with the name? I suppose not.

Eloise is one of those names with a specific source for the popularity in Sweden. It was very uncommon until in 1993 the "dance-band-group" Arvingarna had a hit with their song "Eloise" - Sweden's contribution to the Eurovision Song Contest that year.

I am sorry, but "Saint Eloise" as you call her, is not seen as a saint, and her name is spelled with a h, making it Héloïse. I should know, I'm called Héloïse (I'm French and often have made research on this name). Héloïse can also mean glorious fighter (Germanic) or god (in Hebraic).

Based on my instincts, I presume that this name will be among the Top 1000 Girl Baby Names in 2006, 2007 or 2008. If you think that this name has seen better days, fine! We'll just wait and see.

This name is so cute for little girls! I think Eloise and Rupert make good sibling names.

Not to offend anyone but I think this is a cold snooty sounding name. I don't like it at all.

I quite like the name personally. I think it is cute and mature.

Eloise Greenfield is a poet.

I love the name Eloise. It is uncommon, feminine, and classy. Too bad a lot of people seem to have negative feelings about this name. I would really love to see more names like this and less of the unsophisticated names with repetitive sounds. Eloise is such a beautiful name.

I believe this name is normally pronounced "EL-o-eez" in English (not "EL-ə-eez"). [noted -ed]

Eloise Hawking (played by Fionnula Flanagan, Alice Evans and Alexandra Krosney) is a character on the TV show "LOST". She is the former leader of the "Others", the mother of Daniel Faraday and is an essential part of the LOST mythos. Of all the leaders of the Others, Eloise is by far the most sympathetic.

I love this name! It makes me think of a mischievous, spunky, yet all-around lovable girl. But that's probably because I think of Kay Thompson's "Eloise" books when I hear this name, in which the title character is just this.

Jennifer Aniston's character in "Love Happens" is named Eloise.

Eloise is a lovely name! And Eloise Hawking from LOST isn't a bad namesake, either.
-- Dawson  12/5/2010
I don't like the "eez" sound at the end. It's not pretty, it sounds like an elitist and old fashioned name (and not in the good way) to me.
-- Chrila96  12/18/2010
American actress/model Denise Richards adopted a baby girl in 2011 and named her Eloise.

I always thought it was pronounced "el owe eese."

This name would be cool as a first name or a middle name. A cute nickname is Ellie. (Just not Lou!)
-- foreverslowly  6/29/2012
I love this name especially with the nickname Lulu or Lola. I would use it to honour my mum Elspeth and my sister whose middle name is Louise. And in Australia it is not too popular.
-- littlemissebony  7/22/2012
I love this name. I'm not sure what I like specifically about it, I just love the sound and the old world charm it has. I also like that it's relatively uncommon- if you meet an Eloise, you probably won't be rolling your eyes and thinking 'another one?' It fits all ages too, and all personalities. We're considering it for our daughter ♡.
-- .Lily.  8/16/2013
I absolutely love this name. It's old-world, charming, classy, stately, feminine, and elegant. Definitely one of my top choices.

The medieval English form Helewis or Helwise is the origin of the surnames Elwes and Elvis, and so is almost surely also the ultimate origin of the male given name Elvis.

Eloise is the first name of Eloise Waggoner, the main character in "Kyrie," a 1968 short story by legendary science fiction writer Poul Anderson (1926-2001).

I know one Eloise who pronounces it as "EE-loys" (the second syllable rhyming with Joyce).
-- Sara Ruth  4/24/2014
LOVE LOVE LOVE I pronounce it as its spelt "El o ise"
Perfect middle name.
