    Default Elsa/Elsie or matilda - girls help please

    Please help with girls name as am really running out of time
    We have DD1 who is Clara and we loved this name and also want a classic but not too popular name to go with this.

    We like:
    Elsa or Elsie - do you prefer elsa or elsie - i prefer elsie but think elsa might be more versatile and can use elsie as NN.

    or
    Matilda (tilly for short )

    Also stuck on middle names - any suggestions


    thanks very much

    I really like Matilda. I think Elsie over Elsa.

    You could team Matilda with a one syllable middle name like Grace, Rose, Jane.

    Other classic names I like: Mabel, Iris, Jemima.

    I like Elsie with Clara as Elsa and Clara is a bit too 'rhymy' for me.
    Matilda (Tilly) is lovely too although becoming quite common (I know 4 under 5yrs).
    Elsie is my top pick x

    Elsie Louise
    Elsie May
    Elsie Rose
    Elsie Grace
    Elsie Anne
    Elsie Lee
    Elsie Joy
    Elsie Paige

    I don't like Elsie.

    I do like Matilda.

    I ADORE the name Elsa. So powerful and royal. The only reason I wouldn't call my daughter that if I had one is because it'd look ridiculous next to my sons names.

    I really like Tilly, but I'm not a fan of Matilda.

    Elsa sounds really nice with Clara and is different but not weird. I really like it

    I like Elsie the best, and I also like Elsa.

    I don't like Matilda.
