Eden or Ella

So I asked a question recently about opinions on the name Eden Marie and I got a lot of really positive feedback, well now my hubby brought up the nam Ella Marie too... So since I am not even pregnant yet and this is kind of all for fun I wanted to get opinions on this too. So the question is...
Eden Marie or Ella Marie, which do you prefer and why?

  • Honestly, if you are going for unique, I think Eden is much less common. I know several young Ella's and their mom's all chose the name because it was so unusual. Eden is well known, but not commonly used. Of course, I think more people will pick Ella, so that might be a more popular name.

  • I like Ella, it is more unique, it is feminine.

  • I am going for not weird but not common, if that makes sense at all. My sons name is Brendan James so it should go with that too.

  • Ella is a beautiful name. It flows so much easier than Eden, which can be difficult to enunciate well.

  • I know all sorts of Ellas and Ellies. I know 1 Eden and her name is actually Edenne (Eh-denn, not Ee-den.)

  • I personally think Ella is over used. Eden is so sweet and not so common.
