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 "Drop you least favourite (girls with 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.
