Elyse looks tacky, Elise is way better and more traditional. Elise isn't as popular as it was a long time ago, so it's already unique. Use Elise!

Also, Elise just looks better. I hate how the "y" sticks out in Elyse.

People would also misspell Elyse as Elise. I mean, if you want to be different, go for it I guess, but let me warn you that you're going to need to spell it out every single time you meet someone.

Elyse is pronounced "E-LIe-s" (E lice) and you can't convince me otherwise. Please use Elise.

I think Elise looks better. Plus, I have the urge to pronounce it "El-lais" or "Ellis".

Elise is better. Just sounds like a trendy way to spell Elise.

This is my middle name. I love it, I think it is strong but also feminine. Simply beautiful!

I think it’s an ugly name (sorry, no hate) in my opinion it’s sounds like an old lady.

My name is Elyse. Honestly, I like Elise better. There is no reason to respell it with a "y". Also, I went to school with two girls with the same name but spelled differently: Alyse and Elise.

This is much more interesting then Elise. I know a very nice Elyse who gets her name misspelled a lot though.

My Name is Elyse and I adore my name. It suits me with my unusual personality and full of life nature. I used to be in two minds as to my name when I was younger, only due to people not pronouncing it right or thinking it was a weird name. But now I love it. A perfect name for a girl or women of any age.

I don't understand what's wrong with plain old Elise. It sounds the same, and has the advantage of no tacky random y where it is unnecessary and has no historical precedent. That being said, the overall sound is very pretty and the name isn't a bad one. I just think Elise is better.

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!"

I prefer Elise.

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. :)

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 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.

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.

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.

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).  9/20/2007
A BAD name.

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.

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.

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.
