Katherine Alice vs. Katherine Elise

Katie is due on January 16th, and we would appreciate some help with her middle name. Alice sounds so classy to us, and yet Elise sounds like a rare beauty. Both are gorgeous! And we’re having the hardest time choosing between them.

I liked the flow of Elise better because it mixes up which syllable the accent is on in the names (ie not KATHerine ALice RUSSell)...very very similar other than that and both are beautiful

You’re right, they are both beautiful names! I personally prefer Katherine Elise as I like the rarity, just as you mentioned.

When it comes to meanings, Elise means "God is my oath" versus Alice, meaning "noble one". Both meanings are pretty with Katherine, meaning "pure".

Finally, in culture I think of Beethoven’s "Fur Elise" or The Cure’s "A Letter to Elise", whereas with Alice, I can only think of Alice In Wonderland. :)

There are my thoughts, since you asked! Haha!
