Elliot is a Greek name derived from the Hebrew name Elijah. In the Bible, Elijah was a prophet, chosen by God, who persuade the Israelites to worship one God (Yahweh) and reject the pagan cults that were prominent. The name translates into “Yahweh is God.” In modern times, Elliot has been a boys' name for over 100 years. It has never achieved the fame that Elijah has but is finding new recognition as a girls' name. “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos named his older daughter Elliott (with an extra “t”) in 2002.
