Last minute middle name change!

I'm a little over 38 wks and my DD will be named Ella, which we love! We had picked Ella Grace, but now I can't shake the name Ella Joy! I love it! I don't want to ask family and friends opinion because well you know, so I figured you guys could help. Does Ella Joy sound funny?

  • My name is Joy. I think it makes a great middle name. I personally am not fond of it as my first name... but then again I guess most people are not happy with their names. lol. I think it is a beautiful name either way.

  • I think it's a delightful name. I think of a happy little girl skipping down the sidewalk!

  • I think both are beautiful and whatever name you decide will be fine and she will live up to either name.
