Name Meaning

1 English: from a Middle English personal name, Elyat, Elyt. This represents at least two Old English personal names which have fallen together: the male name Aðelgēat (composed of the elements aðel ‘noble’ + Gēat, a tribal name; see Jocelyn ), and the female personal name Aðelgȳð (composed of the elements aðel ‘noble’ + gȳð ‘battle’). The Middle English name seems also to have absorbed various other personal names of Old English or Continental Germanic origin, as for example Old English Ælfweald ( see Ellwood ).2 English: from a pet form of Ellis .3 Scottish: Anglicized form of the originally distinct Gaelic surname Elloch, Eloth, a topographic name from Gaelic eileach ‘dam’, ‘mound’, ‘bank’.
