My middle name is Noelle, I have always really liked it! I also have never met anyone else with it for a first or middle name, and I like that it’s different while not being totally out there.
Congrats on baby #2! 😊

Noelle is and has always been my #1 name on my baby name list for the future! I adore it. I don’t know anyone with the name.

It’s a beautiful, timeless name!

I find the elle, and El in the end of the first name and beginning of the middle name is a bit awkward but I like both names separately, very pretty.
My niece’s name is Noella and we call her Noey for short. My sister wasn’t a fan of the alternative nicknames.

Noelle is a beautiful name! It’s one of my favorites too. As a substitute teacher, I haven’t met any little girls names Noelle yet.

I like Noelle Elizabeth a lot. I also think that Noelle and Virginia are both pretty and classic names that go well together, as do the nicknames Nelly and Ginny.
In the US, Noelle isn’t very popular–it’s most recently 235/1000 in 2017 with 1,339 girls born with that name. Compared with 19,738 girls named Emma in 2017, that gives you some perspective.
Regarding popularity, I’d say your daughter is likely to meet people with the name Noelle in her lifetime, but isn’t likely to be in a class with a Noelle. My name is approximately the same level of popularity for my birth year as Noell was in 2017, and I wasn’t in a class with a girl with my name growing up. At my medium sized college, there was one other girl in my graduating class with my same first name.
Personally, I always feel like it’s good to be at this level of popularity, because your name is popular enough for people to know it, but it’s not too popular…you’re not running into people with the same name all the time.
Actually, you know what’s really interesting? Noelle, Virginia, and Holly (assuming this is your name) are all a bit Christmassy. Like I said before, I think Noelle and Virginia go together really well because they are both timeless names, but this is just an interesting tie-in/observation.
Interestingly enough, have met a few people with holiday-related names who were born around the holidays, and really don’t like the fact that their birthdays and their names are associated with the holidays.

I just had a baby girl and Noelle was the only name we both agreed on. However, we couldn’t agreed on a middle name that sounded good with it. We were considering Noelle Eve, bc of due date. Thankfully, she was born late! I felt it was too cheesy, haha ! I like your name choice, I love the name Noelle. We used it for middle name, less cheesy. Haha 🤣
