Ella vs. Eleanor vs. Emily

Thinking of E names for a second little girl I love the nn Ellie & Emme since we already have an Annie. Ella is strait to the point simple and I hear it is popular but never ever met anyone with this name. Eleanor allows Nn Like Elle, Ella and Nora which my husband likes but I am not sold on such a long name with our surname being so long. Emily sits well with 5 letters and being pretty, but rhymes a little with a Y at the end of our surname. Any suggestions?

NEVER put names that rhyme, so I discourage Emily. It’s always better to have longer names so they can transition to nicknames. Don’t worry if your last name is too long, it only sounds weird if your first name is longer than your last name. It doesn’t sound too weird if you have a long first and last name. Besides you could nickname her Ella! So I would go for Eleanor.

I like Eleanor the best. Another nn option is Lenny which I think is so cute!

Ella is ok but a bit boring for me personally. Emily is too rhymey.

You should never put a middle name that is longer than your first name. So if you name her Ella, her nickname has to be something short like Kate, Rose, Mary, or Sue. So I would choose Eleanor.

I prefer Eleanor. Emily is pretty but kinda plain and the rhymey thing is not too good. I never really saw the appeal of Ella anyway, so yeah I would go with Eleanor (I like nn Ellie too) GL!

Emma perhaps? An old classic that is still just as beautiful and becoming much less common! And can be used as a full name for Emmy!
