The name Elyse is a girl's name of Hebrew origin meaning "pledged to God". Elyse is ranked #679 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like TV Mom Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Girls Makeover - Two Middles".
From the experts:
Elyse hasn't been heard much since the 80s, but it's beginning to be reconsidered as a possibIlity again, now that it's not so much seen as a Mom name, as it was in the TV show "Family Ties." A spelling variation of Elise, it's another variation of Elizabeth. Many parents today would opt for Eliza.
