Yes. I like it. I’m planning to use (if I ever have agirl) the name Gabriella, with the nickname Brie. But make sure you start calling her Ella right away, because if you don’t other people will take it upon themselves to shorten it to Brie.

Briella is great, not too uncommon to be used at all because it is familiar-sounding and most importantly, easy to see how to say it!

I love Ella a lot too, and yes just make sure you introduce her as Ella and it should stick.

I won’t give my personal opinion of the name since you didn’t really ask for that. πŸ™‚

To answer your question, I don’t think it’s “too uncommon.” It only popped up on the social security’s top 1000 in 2010, but then moved up about 400 spots in 2011 to the 497th spot. I’m actually considering a name for my daughter that has never been in the top 1000 (Mirabelle). Now that’s uncommon.

I think Ella would work just fine as a nickname.

I bet a lot of people would end up calling her Bri. Why don’t you just name her Ella if that’s what you intend on calling her?

Very pretty name πŸ™‚ Definitely call her Ella from the start though so people know to call her that πŸ™‚

@AcheneMalefic:  Well, I don’t have anything specific against it, I just don’t love the sound of it for some reason. I’ve never cared for Gabriella either. But you love it and that’s all that matters!

@iheartnerds:  Agreed. If uncommon is what you’re looking for, this doesn’t really hit the mark. Are you just looking for a longer, uncommon form of Ella (so you can use Ella as a nickname)? Because there are plenty of those if you’re looking for suggestions. πŸ™‚

How about Arabella? Isabella I love but is very popular at the moment, so you may not want that
