    I voted for Elise. It makes me think of Fur Elise or the Champs-Elysees, very pretty and classic. Scarlett makes me think of Ms. Scarlet or the Scarlet letter or Scarlet Pimpernell or scars…

    Elise makes me think of Alysse, the birth control pill that caused all that trouble :S

    I’d keep both and see who she looks like when she arrives.  Once you meet her, you can decide if she looks like Elise…or maybe more like a Scarlett!  When my son was born, we were down to Liam or Gavin as finalists for his name.  As soon as he opened his eyes,  he WAS Gavin.  Liam didn’t fit him at all.   I know the trend is to have the baby’s name all set before they are born, but I vote to wait until you see which name suits her best.  🙂

    They’re such different-feeling names! Do you have other kids? It might help to pick if we know what sort of sibset she’ll be fitting into. 

    I do agree that waiting to see what she looks like might be good. We’d picked out names for our girls beforehand, but when they were born we had to swap their names around as they looked like each other’s names!

    I like Elise only because Scarlett seems so popular these days, whereas Elise is pretty classic.

    These are two names that are on our girl list too!  I like Scarlett because it’s kind of old fashioned but not old lady.  And I love Elise because it’s a sweet, girly name.

    I voted for Elise. I love the way it sounds. But I agree with the previous poster about keeping a few options and deciding when baby is born. We had three options for DD and didn’t choose one until an hour or so after her birth. After I spent some time with her, two of the names just didn’t feel right and we were left with her name (the more unusual of the three).
