  1. My name is Elsie and I was born in 1999 and live in the U.K.. I was the only Elsie my teachers had taught, and the only Elsie in all of my schools. I have always gotten compliments on my name which I like, but one thing that does annoy me is the amount of people who misspell it or pronounce it as “Elise“.

  2. We named Elsie after my grandmother who was an amazing woman in my life growing up and who died because of cancer when I was 13.

  3. God gave me the name Elsie.
    The meaning of Elsie is “God is my Oath”.
    I love the name, because I don’t know anyone with the name. Well the Borden cows name is Elsie. Lol.
    My baby girls full name
    Is Elsie Mai Darlene Wright
    ??

  4. She is happy all the time

  5. We chose Elsie in Nov for our baby girl that was born last month. We chose it by looking on the back of pictures of great grandmas and great-great grandmas…that’s how we found out name for our baby girl: Elsie.

  6. We love uncommon names and had a hard time agreeing on names that we liked for girls, so when we both liked Elsie that was the one for us
