Elle Woods from 'Legally Blonde' put a bubbly, you-go-girl spin on this simple name, which soared in popularity when the movie came out in 2001. Elle earns extra points because it has a chic French connection: “Elle” is the pronoun “she” in French. If you want to get in on the “el” and “elle” craze (Ella, Isabelle) but prefer a name that hasn’t exploded yet, choose Elle. It’s worked quite nicely for actress Elle Fanning and model Elle Macpherson.
