Elisabeth vs. Elizabeth

My husband’s mother was named Alice and I thought it would nice to honor her in a girl’s name. However, my husband isn’t crazy about the name. Someone recommended Elise as an alternative but it sounds funny with our last name. My husband started thinking that maybe we would use Elisabeth or Elizabeth as a way to honor Alice, but also give her a name of her own. What do you think???

It’s fine if that’s what you both want to do. Otherwise, just focus on picking a name you both like. It sounds like your husband doesn’t care if you use his mom’s name. You could always use Alice or Allyson as a middle name.

You could also do Elisa or Eliza with the middle name Beth if you wanted to honor her more. I personally love when the middle bane honors a family member, but the first name is a name of there own. Just my opinion. Good Luck!

I like Elizabeth, but if you want to honor Alice you could use Allison, Alyse, Alicia, Alyssa, Alessandra, Alisa, Alisha.

You could name her Alice and call her Ally.
