possible to avoid being another Ella/Ellie?
I'm not crazy about it. I don't understand everyones hate towards Ella/Ellie..I don't know any. If you like it and are comfortable w/ it go for it!
I really like Eloise. I think you could avoid Ellie if you establish another nn, or make it clear that her name is just Eloise.
Personally, I love the nn Lou.
I really like it. You can use the nn Ellie or Ella if you'd like, but it also gives her a beautiful 'adult' name to use when she's older if she prefers.
And as a PP said, Lou is a really cute nn if you're trying to completely avoid the Ella fad.

Raeily:It's NMS but it is a very pretty name.
We're naming our daughter due in January Eloise. We call her Elsie all the time already and so far no one has tried to call her Ellie.
I really don't think it would be difficult to only have her called Eloise but in the end it's up to her. As long as you're okay with the possibility that she might choose to go by Elle/Ellie/Ella when she gets old enough to make the decision I think you can prevent it while she's young.
