Cute as a nickname for Eliana or Elizabeth. I personally prefer Eliana which is very stunning, whereas Elizabeth is a bit dated.

It's a beautiful name, don't get me wrong. But it's just way too popular for my taste. I’ve met so many Ella's and Ellie's. I’d go with something more unique, however, you do you.

I actually quite like this name. I think it's much nicer than Ellie - especially as a stand alone name. I'm not often a fan of nicknames being used as firstnames themselves but this is one of the exceptions. It's quite popular but I only know a couple of Ellas so it probably wouldn't be too much of a problem. Overall, a pretty and nice name :)

When I think of the name Ella, I imagine a magnetic, attractive young girl/woman. I think this name ages fairly well so I can imagine her pretty much any age. She has curly, thick dark hair, hazel or brown eyes, but I can also imagine an Ella with very intensely blue eyes who would look a bit differently. She is very feminine. Has a heart-shaped face, rosy cheeks, nice features. Ella is full of charm and very playful, energetic, active, optimistic, there's always a lot going on around her. She is a bit selfish, but not cold-hearted, she likes helping people and is easily moved by someone's suffering of any kind. She is frank and direct. Ella has a talent for music and dance, or at least feels strongly towards those things. She's a real aesthete, takes care of her beauty, is interested in lifestyle, interior design, wants to make everything around herself beautiful. She is fiercely independent but sometimes likes to be spoiled by others. It's a very romantic and affectionate soul. She is very girly. She's not a minimalist, quite the opposite, she likes living in comfort and luxury. She's a bit vain. Ella is bright and intelligent and creative and has always hundreds of ideas. She doesn't like discipline and constraints and can be rebellious. She's very, very strong-willed, determined and stubborn. People usually like her for her charm but sometimes might shy away from her as she can be a bit overwhelming and domineering and overly emotional, and might appear shallow. She's very hospitable and likes both eating and cooking. This is a sociable extrovert who loves interacting with people, especially if all eyes are focused on her, and she always has something to say. She might be up to some mischief once in a while, and she likes flirting. This is just the way I imagine an Ella when I think of this name, I don't even know anyone named Ella in person and that's not how I think all Ellas are or should be.

I love the name Ella. It maybe is very popular, which is a big downside in my opinion, but I still love it and I can understand why so many people want to use it. It's charming, kind of playful, charming, delicate, but it is also sophisticated and upperclass and very girly. I guess it doesn't sound particularly strong, maybe is even frilly, but I think bearers of this name have to be very strong, self-confident women. Though, despite loving this name, I don't think I would use it myself for a child. I'd rather go with something longer, starting with El-, or maybe even just with L-? Or ending in -Ella, and then I'd call her Ella once in a while. I love this kind of name.

Ella is also used more and more willingly by parents in Poland, being a fresher and more sophisticated, universal alternative to Ela - used here mostly as a diminutive of Elżbieta (Elizabeth). Last year, 2017, 12 newborn girls were given this name, and the name Ella was 279th in the ranking.

It's a little short, but it works much better in my opinion than Elle.

This could also be used as a nickname for Elizabeth. It's short, sweet, not old fashioned like Betty or Beth, not strange like Buffy and not overly common like Lisa or Ellie. Yep, this is definitely a good nickname to use.
