User comments for Ellie (Meaning / History Only)

Can be from the ancient Greek name "ELLH", pronounced "Elee" in Greek. In Greek mythology, ELLH was the daughter of Athamas and Nefele, sister of Frixos.

I'm using it as a nickname for my daughter, Eloise.

I have always gone by Ellie, but it is short for Michelle. I'm 24 years old and have never even heard of anybody else with that name. I have never, ever thought of it as common.
