    small translation please...

    I would like to translate this phrase please - informal to a female with some humor:

    "interesting elvish nickname - it does suits your personality perfectly, don't you think so?"

    I'm an absolute beginner and came up with this:

    "интересная эльфийская прозвище - оно подходит вашей личности отлично, ты не так думаешь?"

    many thanks in advance

    The closest to your variant grammatically correct phrase is:

    «Интересное эльфийское прозвище — оно отлично подходит к твоей личности, ты так не думаешь?» (if you mean her nickname IRL)
    or
    «Интересный эльфийский ник — он отлично подходит к твоей личности, ты так не думаешь?» (if you mean her nickname on the internet)
    Please correct my English

    If you like a literary translation rather than word-by word one then it should be something like:
    Интересный эльфийский ник — он очень тебе идет, не так ли?
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
