Ellis is a name with two possible heritages. The first is potentially a Welsh name, deriving from the original name Elisedd, meaning ‘Kind’. The second is being an English diminutive of Elijah, meaning ‘My God is YHWH’.

Ellis seems a more complete alternative for Ellie, or is similar to Hollis, Ellary and Ailis.

You could also use Ellis as a nickname for longer names Elisheva or Elisifetta.
