    So, today I discovered the name Elva. what do you guys think? have you come across it before? it means leader of the elves and also means eleven is swedish. I think there’s plenty of nicknames you can get from it, Elle, Ellie, Elvie, Elkie, LV and it sort of fits in with all the Ava’s, Eva’s, Ella ‘ s etc.

    What is your opinion?

    on a personal note I’m getting married on the 11th of next month, so would make a cool meaning for a little girl for us. thanks :) xxx

    I don’t think I really like it. The elves thing actually kinda turns me off. I’d MUCH prefer Ella, Ellie, Ava or Eva.

    I like the El- part and I love most names with a “v” in them so I have to give it the green light although at first glance I just saw “Elves”

    I immediately thought of Elvis. Honestly, I’m not really a fan.

    ive heard it. i could see where its a cool spin off of ava and ella but i dont think it has a nice sound. i think the similar elsa and alma are better

    It made me think of Elvis right away too.

    Thought of elves immediately. As much of a fantasy fan as I am, I don’t think I could use something so obvious sounding. And I agree, Elvis comes to mind too.
    I’ve heard Elvira before (not sure if that’s the spelling), but that’s kinda pretty and similar?

    I have the short flings, too. :)

    I had a great-aunt named Elvira. I loved her, but that name still really makes me think of this:
