Gender: F Meaning of Wallis: "a Welshman, Celt" Origin of Wallis: Variation of Wallace

Famously borne by the woman (born Bessie) for whom an English king sacrificed his throne, Wallis has the force of a masculine name with a distinctive spelling to set it apart from the boys. Anthony Edwards revived it for his daughter, and we're hearing some buzz about it on Nameberry.
