Oooh, I like it! If you don't mind the nn Al, because that might happen. I'd say the "i" spelling looks more familiar to me. My only reference for this name is You Can't Do That On Television. Remember that show? When Alanis Morisette was on it! Hahah! Great name, though.

My favorite form of this (by far) is Alasdair (which is fabulous!!).

Yes, I knew it was from somewhere in my childhood, I just couldn't think of where. I freaking loved that show. In fact, I remember thinking that Ally (what alanis went by) was such I cool name that I wished it were my name!

Dh actually thought of it last night. I am really enjoying his new found name enthusiasm. I crashed at 9 and when I woke up this AM he had some name books on his nightstand!

I'll have to see what spelling DH was thinking of, he suggested it as I was falling asleep so I just assumed it was on of the two I listed.

The spelling thing is a drawback to the name for sure. With so many legit forms, it's bound to be misspelled...

Dashing, that's what I think about it too! Glad no one thinks it is too out there!

What does everyone think of nns for it? Al is not great, ally is my neices nn, so no. Is it bound to be shortened? Is there some alternative that I'm not thinking of?

I really love this name, it was one of the top 3 names on our list for quite awhile.




Thank you for the sig Mary

I guess I'm the dissenting view here, but I've always thought it was a bit too fussy and uptight.
