My Name is Elsie


Elsie Tanner ( Pat Phoenix) was an actress in the soap opera Coronation Street.

Daily Post – Say your name.

Write about your first name: Are you named after someone or something? Are there any stories or associations attached to it? If you had the choice, would you rename yourself

The meaning of the name “Elsie” is: “My God is a vow”.

The name Elsie is of Hebrew origin and is used mostly in English speaking countries.

In American, the meaning of the name Elsie is: noble.

Elsie was my GrandMother’s name on my father’s side.

My mothers name was Elsie Calista – Everyone always called her Calista.

I wonder why she was never called by her first name Elsie, it’s a bit late now she past away in 1976.

Wish I had thought of asking her.

If I had the choice I wouldn’t rename myself, I’m very proud to be named after my grandmother.

When I named my oldest daughter in 1961, Elsie wasn’t heard off, so I named her Elsa, when I did it, it originally had a Z in it, everyone told me I had spelt it wrong, so I changed her birth certificate to Elsa, it was her second name not first.

I just had a quick look for famous people named Elsie, it appears that it’s not really a very popular name.

This is about the only young child called Elsie that I found.

Then there’s Elsie Tanner – Coronation Street Actor.

Anyone reading this, please acknowledge, love to know the name Elsie isn’t a name of the past.
