My Name is Elaine - and I have ALWAYS loved my name. I like names that are not very common. I don't know too many Elaine's. Also... My father choose my name, he died when I was 3 so that makes me like it even more.

I think Elaine is a beautiful name. My grandma (Grammy) has Elaine as her middle name. Her first name is Della. My husband and I have chosen to name our little girl, when she arrives, Isabella Elaine and call her Bella Elaine after her great "GREAT" grandmother.

my middle name is elaine and i used to hate it now that i am older i love the name also my father named me. my intial's are REF the same of my father which makes me very proud also in response to comment from Bananas just because your friend is cuban and has the name elaine does not mean the name is cuban.

When I was a kid, having our name was a little hard because it was very rare that personalized stuff was ever in Elaine. Between the Judy Bloom book "You Give Me a Pain Elaine" that came out when I was 11 or 12 and Sr Louise at my grade school (Louise is my middle name), I had it a little tough. Now I have embraced my name. And it is kind of cool to know that my French ancestry is honored along with my German ancestry in my last name.
