Meaning:Black; Shining one
Although short and sweet, the name Ele has a strong meaning behind it. Typically feminine and of Hawaiian origin, Ele is thought to be a short form of Ellen, Eleuterio, or Eleanor. It is thought to mean “black” or “shining one,” honoring the warm light baby radiates. Much more popular in the late 90s, we have no doubt your sweet little cherub will bring it back to the charts.
