Gender: M Meaning of Ellery: "island with elder trees" Origin of Ellery: English

Ellery is a rhythmic three-syllable boy's name that is familiar and yet rarely used--and just waiting to be discovered. It's long been identified with Ellery Queen--which was both the pen name of two cousins, Frederic Dannay and Manfred B. Lee, and the detective they created.

Laura Dern and Ben Harper chose it for their son.
