English, German, Scandinavian, Dutch
The little girls' name with a very pretty touch of French chic. Both refined and wholesome, Elise really does sound both elegant and natural. It’s a sweet’ light derivative of the more classic Elizabeth and means ‘pledge’. Without realizing it, you may know Beethoven’s composition Fur Elise, meaning 'for Elise'! It’s today one of his most popular light and sparkling piano pieces, and
one which many may recognize!
