    Emma is super common these days so that makes it less appealing to me. But Ellison is pretty, and I adore the nickname Elli. Like Ellie Goulding.

    I personally am not a fan of odd spellings for common names (Emmalie vs Emily), so I’m voting Ellison.

    I picked Ellison. I liked Ellasyn a lot also but I feel like people will spell it Ellison either way so why not make it easier on your little girl 🙂

    Shanekstedt1524:  I like Emily or Emma (I don’t like spelling common names differently). Ellison is too much like Alison, IMO. I feel like she’d be constantly correcting people after saying her name.

    If your going to shorten them why not call her to shortened version and get rid of the long version? All the short versions are names anyway.

    Ellison is unique and cute, although it does sound a lot like Allison. I would spell it Ellisyn because I think it looks more feminine.

    I don’t like odd spellings of names, either. I voted for Ellison.

    I voted for Ellison. But I think maybe people will assume her name is Allison. Same with Emmalee–people will think her name is Emily.

    I voted Ellison, but I do think that everyone is going to call her Allison if you do that. I’m not a fan of weird spellings of common names like Emmalie, everyone is going to spell it Emily. I’m really not a fan of Ellasyn, it’s just too yoonique for my taste, adding “y” in names in place of other vowels is very trendy these days. 

    I think Ellie or Ella are very pretty, however, I’d just go with those. Even those can be shortened to Elle.

    Shanekstedt1524: I disagree. She could always shorten to “Elle” or simply “E”.

    I have a pretty straightforward name, and my mom called me a longer version as a term of endearment. And throughout middle/high school friends always found different ways to shorten it further.

    Ellison is the only one on that list that doesn’t make me cringe.
