Eleri is a feminine name of ancient Welsh origin thought to be a variation of Hilary. As a variant of the Greek hilaros—_inspiration for the Latin _hilaris—Eleri could mean "cheerful," light-hearted," or "merry." However, Eleri may also refer to the Welsh river, also known as Afon Leri. In any case, Eleri's singsong sound cannot be denied, painting the picture of a spirited character happy to go with the flow.
