Ellie first took off in the UK--yes, in this nickname form--and this warm and friendly name has also taken off here. In 2011, Ellie entered the Top 100 for the first time and arrived at Number 55 in 2014.
Ellie has been making many media appearances--she's been seen in the animated film Up, on The West Wing, and even as a woolly mammoth in the film Ice Age: The Meltdown.
One caveat, if you are considering Ellie: Along with all the girls named Ellie and longer forms such as Eleanor and Ella, there are going to be an awful lot of Ellies around in coming years.
