Need Help Please! Cant Decide Between Two Names! Need Lots of Votes! :)
So, to make a long story short, me and my hubby were picking out names, and we cant decide between these two names for a girl. We have even asked a few close family members, but we still cant come up with a decision, so we want to see what one is more popular with votes, so we are trying to get as many votes as possible! :) Thank you!

1. Ellie Mae

28
2. Brinley Marie

I really like both though I voted for Ellie Mae cause I think it sounds really cute. I only know one Ellie who is older and one Brinley who is 3. They are both cute names.

As much as I love the ring to Ellie Mae, I can't help but associate the name with "The Beverly Hillbillies;" Jed Clampett's daughter's name was Elly May. A lot of people don't even know "The Beverly Hillbillies" anymore, though...it's a pretty old show.

Anyway, I also really like Brinley. It's very cute and very original. But I like the combination of Brinley Mae better than when it's used with Marie. ☺

Brinley is an awesome name and Ellie reminds me of the ladies in the nursing home.

i like Ellie. The name Brinley reminds me of a dog for some reason. I do like Ellie Marie more than Ellie Mae.

Thanks everyone! Who knew this could be such a tough choice! lol I love both names too :) And I think whatever name we choose will have my middle name marie :) But, I just wish I could get the hubby to love the name Brinley as much as I do lol I think he might be warming up to it tho :) I just love it because it is unique and I know nobody else would have that name in her class, but wow, I am really surprised that the names are pretty tied in votes! lol

Ellie Mae is cute but it immediately brings to mind The Beverly Hillbillies, atleast for me.  I voted for  Brinley Marie becuase it's not a common name and I can't think of any assocations that could be used to make fun of the name :)

I voted ellie mae.

however, the name carries a certain "stigma"  with it.  Trust me, as I am Cindy Lou.  I just use Cindy, but once people know my middle name is Lou, it is game on for all the hillbilly & Grinch jokes.  

I'm sure no matter what name we pick for our children, some kid is going to find a way to make fun of it.  My daughters name is Anna.  She actually thought her middle name was "bananna" until a few months ago.

I like the name Ellie.  It sounds sweet.  Brinley seems a little "trendy" for my taste.  I like the classic, yet less common names.
