Elliot (which boasts several spellings depending upon how many 'l's or 't's you want to use) is a winner -- it has the ideal quality of being neither too common nor weirdly unique. Elliot had a style boost back in the early 1980s via the young hero of the movie "E.T." , who was named Elliot. Since then there have been Elliots on "Law & Order: SVU" and "Mad Men."
Another traditional boy's name lured into the girls' camp, a raid led by political commentator George Stephanopoulos and wife Ali Wentworth. Variously spelled Eliot, Elliot, Elliott and Elliotte (used by Marla Sokoloff), its star is definitely on the rise for girls, as well as for boys. Bonus for girls is cute and feminine nickname, Ellie.
Dr. Elliot Reid was a female character on Scrubs.
