"from the island"

Ennis Origin and Meaning

The name Ennis is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Irish origin meaning "from the island".
An appealing Irish placename with a unisex feel, Ennis would be a fresh alternative to Dennis and Ellis. It's little-used for boys and even rarer for girls, but since Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons used it for their son, it could be one to watch.
