Late 16C English Given Names: Notes on Ellis

Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names

Notes on the name Ellis

Ellis: Probably late survivals of ME Elis < Elias, but possibly transferred surnames; see DECN at Elijah, DES at Ellis. Halius is apparently a variant; in one case the name is given as Ellis (Halius) Heron; this tends to confirm the identity with Elias.
