There’s a lot to get ready before you have a new baby.
There’s a nursery to design, supplies to buy, and oh… you have to pick the right name!
According to Parenting.com, a person’s name is a lot more than it seems. A name also plays a large role in how people see others, and it can influence how your daughter sees herself.
When you look at it that way, it’s easy to see why so many people scour the pages of Google and baby books for hours, searching for the absolute best first name for their children. But, if you spend all of your time looking for a first name, you might end up with little time to devote to your middle name search.
That’s why I’ve been putting together my How To Pick A Middle Name series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your daughter!
Without any further ado, here are the best middle names for a girl named Elle.
I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
Hope it helps!
Middle name ideas for a girl named Elle
Let’s get right into the list!
Here are a few dozens options from real parents, real Elles, and a few ideas of my own:
My favorite middle names for Elle are Elle Madeline and Elle Josephine.
I like how these feminine, multi-syllable names flow with Elle. There are so many choices, though, so you should pick the ones that sound the best to you!
Meaning of the name Elle
According to Nameberry, Elle is of French origin and means “she.”
Other meanings are “woman” and “girl,” and the Hebrew origin means “sun ray,” “shining light,” and “God’s promise.”
The name Elle sits at number 252 on Babycenter’s popularity list for girl names for 2021. Therefore, your daughter will certainly stand out with this beautiful and somewhat rare name.
Some famous Elles are actress Elle Fanning and supermodel Elle Nancy MacPherson. Of course, there’s also the famous main character from Legally Blonde, Elle Woods.
Hopefully you found “the one” in the list above, but if not, I encourage you to seek out more middle name resources. Parenting forums like Babycenter are a goldmine of wisdom from real parents and can be easily searched.
