There’s a nursery to design, supplies to buy, and oh… you have to pick the right name!

According to, a person’s name is a lot more than it seems. A name also plays a large role in how people see others, and it can influence how your daughter sees herself.

According to Nameberry, Elle is of French origin and means “she.”

Other meanings are “woman” and “girl,” and the Hebrew origin means “sun ray,” “shining light,” and “God’s promise.”

The name Elle sits at number 252 on Babycenter’s popularity list for girl names for 2021. Therefore, your daughter will certainly stand out with this beautiful and somewhat rare name.

Some famous Elles are actress Elle Fanning and supermodel Elle Nancy MacPherson. Of course, there’s also the famous main character from Legally Blonde, Elle Woods.

Hopefully you found “the one” in the list above, but if not, I encourage you to seek out more middle name resources. Parenting forums like Babycenter are a goldmine of wisdom from real parents and can be easily searched.
