Elliot Origin and Meaning

The name Elliot is a boy's name meaning "Jehovah is God".

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.

Elliott namesakes include composer Carter, actor Gould, and photographer Erwitt.
