We have decided on a name for our baby girl (Elise), but I can’t stop looking at names! It’s addictive! Lol. I just came across the name Kalea (pronounced Kah LEE uh). What do you think of it? Does it sound too trendy? Do you like Elise or Kalea better?

@jules28: I love the name Elise, so simple and classic. Kalea makes me think of Kahlua (the drink).

Elise! So pretty! I’m not a fan of K names

I think they are both lovely. Having a unique name as a girl is pretty awesome, I’d know!

@jules28: I actually really like both of the names! They’re not super common, but not too weird!

I will always vote in favor of the name you DON’T have to say “pronounced like…” 🙂 Elise is a nice name.

@aggie2010: +1! Reading a name and having no idea of how to pronounce is never a good idea, IMO.
OP, I love the name Elise! So classy and elegant.

No proviso on the end is a good rule.
Also included is “but it’s spelled….”

Elise! The Cure’s song “Letter to Elise” immediately popped into my mind as well.
