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 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.
