Quoting Patches_Panda:" How about Alyse instead of Elyse.... its got an amazing ring to it... Sage is a spice it sounds odd with ... [snip!] ... in their eyes... My son I knew when I seen him.. the name Samuel Lee was for him I felt it...just knew it... Best of luck!!!"
I never even thought about changing it from Elyse to Alyse, I like that. And its funny you put Lorraine in that list because its one of my good friends middle names and I was just telling her how I liked it. I don't think I could use it though because its her middle name, I mean we've been friends for almost 15 years but we've had our huge blow outs and even if we used it and didn't name her that after my friend I'd always think about her and who knows what our friendship will be like in the future. But I know exactly what you mean we have 2 little boys already and I feel like their names fit them perfectly.
