Comments for ELYSE:

This is my daughter's name, she is beautiful and so is the name Elyse. It can be spelled in other ways but I think this is the prettiest.

I'm in the process of naming a daughter and I'm pretty sure this is the name for her! I think it is a beautiful and sophisticated name; I hope she likes it as much as I do.

Elyse is a great name! I prefer the name with the y instead of the i. Elyse is a great name for a little girl, and older woman and every age in between.

A BAD name.

My name is Elyse, and I think the name is Ok. People are always saying Elsie, because people don't read it right. The Y is before the S people. GET IT RIGHT! There is also a song called "Fur Elise" by Beethoveen. I personally think it is a great name, if you pronounce it right. It is pronounced (eee-leese) or slang version (uhh-leese).

I adore the name Elyse, it is a beautiful name that rolls off the tongue. I loved it so much that I used it in one of my stories. The charecter's name is Elyse Elwood.

I think this is a lovely name. My middle name is Elysse, accidentally spelled with an extra 's' on my birth certificate, but I think this name is beautiful and strong.

Elyse Sewell (born June 10, 1982, in Albequerque, New Mexico) is an American supermodel who got her start on the first season of America's Next Top Model, hosted by former supermodel Tyra Banks. Elyse currently (as of 2009) lives in Hong Kong, and is possibly the most successful contestant to ever go on Tyra's show.

In Greek mythology, Elysion (Greek: Ἠλύσια πεδία) was a section of the Underworld. The Elysian Fields, or the Elysian Plains, were the final resting place of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous. Essesntially meaning 'paradise.' One would have to cross the River Styx in order to enter The Elysian Fields.

In the Renaissance, the heroic population of the Elysian Fields tended to outshine its formerly dreary pagan reputation; the Elysian Fields borrowed some of the bright allure of paradise. In Paris, the Champs-Élysées retain their name of the Elysian Fields, first applied in the late 16th century to a formerly rural outlier beyond the formal parterre gardens behind the royal French palace of the Tuileries.

The New Orleans neighborhood of Elysian Fields in Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire is the declassé purgatory where Blanche Dubois lives with Stanley and Stella Kowalski.

Elysium is referenced in the Schiller poem which inspired Beethoven's Ode to Joy.

Elyse is my 2nd middle name. My dad loved the show Family Ties, therefore he named me after the mother. This is the only one of my names that I am actually proud of. :)

I prefer Elise.

I love this name! Not just because it rhymes with my name but I think it sounds really pretty.

I think it's so pretty. It's very versatile in age and is a cute name when a girl is little, a pretty name in her teens, and an elegant/chic name for when a girl grows into adulthood. My friend spells it Elyse but I have seen Elise (which I have found is the more common spelling) or as Alyse. She says it like Uhh-lee-s. I asked her if she liked her name and she says that she likes that no one she knows has the same name. She said there is usually no Elyse S. And Elyse B. (example) because it is sort of uncommon. But the name is common enough so most know how to say it. Elyse said,"but I guess not common enough so that it gets on a keychain... haha!"
