Remember my post about Eloise just a few months ago? I was so worried about how popular it would become and wanted everyones opinions? Well, I don't think anyone guessed it would have grown this much. Honestly, this was the last piece of info I needed to really know we made the right decision. And I can safely say that we did make the right choice, Eloise is going to get too popular for us. Yay for little Elspeth! She does have the perfect name, I hate to admit it, but my husband was right all along :)

The jump Eloise made from 2009 to 2010 is crazy.

Admittedly, I didn't really look at Elsie's popularity because I wasn't planning on using it in our family, more as an alternative for other people who found Elspeth hard to understand. However, it just stuck and It absolutely makes me melt. Lots of people have responded well to it, so I was fully expecting to see it gain. It's so sweet and cute, how could it not? I've decided that if a a person doesn't like the name Elsie, they simply don't have a heart :)

It still is an old lady name to plenty of the population though, so I don't expect it to sky rocket in the next two years.
