I love this name, because it has everything that I love about Elizabeth, but a LOT less common. It's distinctive and elegant IMO. Also it's the one name where I wouldn't be disgusted if she went by the nickname Ellie, provided it was spelt like Eli :)

This name means also means "God and seven", seven being the number of "perfection" in Jewish culture. I find that so interesting.
