I think Elsie is a beautifully pretty name. I like it as a first name. Just like Katy's little sister, Elsie Carr, in the book "What Katy Did."

My grandmother's name was Elsie and I wanted to name a daughter after her, but I was worried that the Borden mascot would be a source of teasing as she got older. Such a shame. So I transposed two of the letters and named her Elise, which I also think is beautiful.

I have to say that I love this name, and there might be a possibility that I will use this name on my daughter some day (of course, if it doesn't get too popular). I thought this was just me at first, but this seems to sound more "Canadian" than "American", along with the pet form Gracie. Simply winsome denomination!

I've heard of it used as short for Elspeth.

I think Elsie is a very pretty name, and not as a shortend version of Elizabeth. But my grandma has all these names she calls 'Maids Names' because she grew up with maids. And she dosnt like the name Elsie because she reckons it's a maids name. I DISAGREE FULLY.

Elsie is one of the main-ish charecters on Gosford Park.

I think that Elsie is a lovely name by itself but I had a dog when I was small called Elsie and can no longer think of it as a human name.

Despite its having recently re-entered the girls top 1,000 names in the United States, I still think of this name as associated with old ladies, but I don't really find it to be hideous as opposed to Bertha and Gertrude.

The northern English television soap Coronation Street had a red-haired character called Elsie Tanner, the soap's original sex-symbol in the Sixties, Seventies, and early Eighties.

I have lived the past 19 years with the name Elsie, I have enjoyed not having to deal with multiple Elsies in classrooms but I must admit the only problem with this name is not the name itself but the world that must read it. So many people will see the name Elsie and pronounce it Elise, it happens about 90% of the time.

It's a cute name, but after reading Borrowed Finery by Paula Fox, I think this name has been ruined for me because it was the name of the author's abusive mother.

Too cow-like. All I can picture is a cow with a bell around its neck. If it weren't for the cow, it would be tolerable, but still too cutesy.

My little cousin is named Elsie Grace which I think sounds rather old-fashioned, but in a good, traditional sort of way. It's not common in people my age, but seems to be becoming more popular.

My name is Elspeth but everyone knows me as Elsie and I much prefer it to other diminutives of my name i.e. Ellie, Els, Ella etc.
However, one draw back is that I seem to only share my name with ladies over 65 or children under 2.

My best friend is about to name her baby girl Elsie. Very feminine, uncommon without being strange or hard to pronounce. One of the throwbacks to older names that doesn't sound unattractive.

The sweet and pious Elsie Dinsmore, from the Elsie novels by Martha Finley, bears this name. So does her daughter, Elsie Travilla, her mother, Elsie Greyson, and a few of her granddaughters.

Love the name Elsie. Its very cute, quirky, vintage sounding but not too unusual. I also know a grown up Elsie who is very cool/stylish.
