Thread: Ella?

  1. #1

    Question Ella?

    i recently met a girl by the name Ella & think its an adorable name...



    what do you think of it?
    do you think its suitable for all ages?
    Also, my name is kelly and it gets shortened to kel.. Do you think the names are too similar? as Ella could be shortened to El?

    I think Ella is lovely, and definately suitable for all ages. I don't think it would matter at all that it sounds similar to your name. If it worries you, make a point that people don't shorten Ella to El.

    We have an Ella and we only know one other Ella, whose parents do call her 'El' quite often.

    We've never called our Ella 'El', though we often call her 'Ella Bella'

    I love Ella and would have it for my daughter of i ever had one except i would have to change my sir name (or divorse and remarrry ) as our sir name is extremely similar and it sounds really wrong when put together.
    One of my pet hates is shortening peoples names, unless the parents do it or the person requests to be called a shortened version i never ever shorten a name. I will also correct anyone who shortens my name too. Just tell them not too if you dont want them too
