    I have a 10 year old cousin named Ellery. I'd honestly never heard of the name when they picked it and thought it was made up haha But I was pretty young then. Now I do like it a lot. My sister is named Mallory so it has a familiar sound to me. I think there's lots of cute nickname possibilities too but Ellery is also very nice. It's different...but not weird!

    I loved Ellery (nn Ellie) until my husband rhymed it with celery. I hadn't even thought of that...still doesn't bother me that much. Hannah rhymes with banana, Carey rhymes with berry, etc...people use those names all the time!

    I actually know a baby named Ellery! She goes by Elle. I think I like it, but I admit the first time I heard it I couldn't get past the 'celery' thing. While I think all el- names are beautiful and Ellery is no exception, I much much prefer Eloise, Elodie, Eleanor, and just plain Ella. Still, I like it a lot and it's a more creative spin on all the el- names of recent years.
