Meaning of the name Ellie

Did you know Ellie means “bright shining one”?

At least it does according to Nameberry, who also pegs the name as having an English origin, although it’s really a derivative of or nickname for names like Eleanor, Ellen, or Elizabeth. (Some sources claim Ellie has a Greek origin, as well.)

However, the name Ellie itself has become outrageously popular in the last 10 years or so, coming in as one of the top 50 most popular names for girls for several years in a row.

Babycenter has Ellie as the #14 name for girls in 2020, up slightly from 2019.
