What do you think of the name Ellis for a boy? And do you prefer Ellis or Elliot?


NickNacks Sun 05-Jan-14 09:15:20

I like both.

Lots of relatives called Ellis. Elliot reminds me of ET

Prefer Elliot, IMO it's more classic.

I prefer Elliot, i know both boys and girls called Ellis, like the name.

I like Ellis

Wouldn't choose either. Elliot reminds me of ET too, although I prefer it to Ellis.

I really like Ellis, I like Elliot too but prefer Ellis.

I like Ellis, it was on our list had we have had a boy smile

Elliot definitely. The only Ellis I know is a teenager who is an absolute shite, think shoplifter, truant, drinking, smoking etc.

I prefer Elliot - that was on my boys list before DP vetoed :-( but I like both. I've never met an Ellis, although I know people with the surname.

I prefer Ellis, but think both are lovely.

Too surnamey.

DC2s middle name is Ellis as it is a family surname. My DH wanted it to be his first name but someone said to me it sounded too much like Alice. Shout it out as if you are calling someone and it does!

Ellis was a given name before it was a surname. It was popular in the Middle Ages as a variant of Elias.

I prefer Ellis - Elliot seems too American.

I like Ellis for a girl but not so keen for a boy tbh, it seems a girly name to me but maybe that's because the Ellis's I know are all girls. I would pick Elliot for a boy.

I like it. Also looks nice spelled Elis.

Lilyrose13 Sun 05-Jan-14 17:39:56

I hadn't heard of the name Ellis till I met someone at work with that name...but it really started to grow on me. Much prefer it to Elliott :-)

Love Ellis. Not over fond of Elliot - always think ET.

I have an Ellis. I love it. It's made it just into the top 100 this time around. So I'm confident it's not too "out there" but that there won't be 3 others in his class.

Curlygirly Sun 05-Jan-14 18:25:08

Love Ellis. I like Elias too. I have an Eli.
