  • "My name is Ellie! I am 12 yrs old. I love having this name so much! It is so easy to write quickly and it is easy to say. The only problem is "Smelly Ellie" "Negative Nellie" "Big bellied Ellie" (even though I am as skinny as a stick), and other mean names like that, and a lot of people confuse my name with "Eli" or "Ally" or sometimes even "Ellis". This name also doesn't go with a ton of last names well, so anyone who has this name typically changes their name to their middle name. Ellie Travis, Ellie Waller, Ellie Griffin, Ellie Henderson, see, it doesn't flow. Other than that it is a great name! LOVE IT! Especially since my mom wanted to name me Molly, and that is not a very good name for a teenager in 2020. :-D" Nov. 12, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Ellie; I had another name picked out for her, but a very special individual I worked with said I should name her "Ally" but spelled the name "Ellie" by mistake. For some reason, as soon as I saw the name on paper, I knew that was going to be her name. Now my daughter's penmanship, strangely enough, looks similar to that individual's."

  • "My name is Elizabeth, but everyone calls me Ellie for short. And have ever since i was born. My parents say they loved the nickname more than any others for Elizabeth, but most people don't see the connection. Usually, people who don't know my full name think Ellie is short for Eleanor or Ellen or Eliza. I actually get that last one a lot... I've enjoyed the name seeing as it's so unique. Although most people think it's Aly at first. Let's just say i've gotten good at over pronunciation. ;)" Oct. 6, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "OK so this is my name and its short for Eleanor and i definitely prefer it to Eleanor but i think it would have been cooler to have more of an original name. Its also really annoying as it rhymes with so many things so it means people will sometimes call be smelly Ellie which isnt the best. But it does mean light or something like that so i guess i do kinda like it" Feb. 19, 2015: Report as inappropriate
