Good name, but reminds me of Celery an awful lot.

I really like this name, and at the moment it isn't popular so that's a plus. I also like that it has the nickname Elle. Ellery has a nice feminime sound to it and also looks pretty and girly. I think if you like names such as Bethany, Chloe and Lucy then you'll like Ellery a lot.

Ellery has grown on me. It is a nice sounding name. I am still torn over whether boy or girl usage though. It does sound a bit feminine.

I think Ellery would be a really cool name for girl. I wish it were mine.

I really like this name. It seems quite unique. It rhymes with celery though and that's the first thought that pops into my head. I hate celery so I couldn't use this name. Darn my brain.

I like it. It sounds feminine to me, but I prefer surnames for boys.

My best friend's name is Ellery Grace. I love her name! It's unique, and I think it's VERY pretty and feminine! I've never thought of it sounding like a boy name, I think it's completely feminine. It does sound like Celery, though.

Why does everyone say this is a feminine name, it's my dad's name and it's also my name.

My name is Ellery, and I personally think it is a very nice name. I believe it is a girl's name, not only because I am a girl, but because it is very feminine sounding. It does remind people of Celery, but it doesn't bother me anymore. I like it and am happy that Ellery is my name. I love it, and wouldn't change it for the world.

Ellery definitely doesn't sound like a girls name to me. It's too strong. Also, if you had twin boys, you could name them Ellery and Emmett.

Ellery Mayne is the eponymous character in "Mayne Attraction" by Ann Mauren, a truly awful free book (think 'Twilight' series but far less fun) on the Amazon Kindle.

It sounds too much like Hilary with a dropped H - a far prettier name similar to Ellery is the Welsh Eleri which I find adorable.

In the Middle Ages, Ellery was the common English form of the Greek name Eulalia. So technically, it is also a feminine name, albeit of a different etymology.

SugarPlumFairy is right.
Ellery is a girl's name in the English West Country, used since medieval times as a corruption of Eulalie. It also has the form Elaria.
Here's what I've just added for Elaria as a "reader-submitted name":
An English medieval form of Eulalia. It was caused by a confusion of the second L with R in local speech, and this also resulted in Hilaria in medieval records, as distinct from the male name Hilary. The cult of St Eulalia spread from Spain and France to the English West Country, where, like Ellery (a corruption of Eulalie)for girls, this name, Elaria, seems to have been used the most. It has been used occasionally in England up until the present day, a search of genealogical sources suggests.

Ellery McCelery.

I've only known this as a masculine name. I was named Ellery after my Uncle. My grandson's name is also Ellery. I prefer it to be pronounced two syllables like ell-ry. I've never met a female with this name.

I was surprised to find out that "Ellery" began as a masculine name because I've only met girls with the name. I think it's a lovely name, but I think it's more feminine.

My daughter's name is Ellery. It is an English gentlemans name (which I was informed of by one such gentleman). However, I chose it because of William Ellery, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. I'm a history buff.

This is a females name! Not REMOTELY masculine.
