the Lord is my God
Elliot lags slightly behind the two-“t” version in terms of popularity. It’s a Greek name derived from the Hebrew name Elijah. In the Bible, Elijah was a prophet who was chosen by God to persuade the Israelites to worship one God (Yahweh) and reject the pagan cults. The name translates into “Yahweh is God.” In modern times, Elliott has been a popular boys' name for over 100 years. Though it has never achieved the fame that Elijah has, it’s finding new recognition as a girls' name. “Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos named his older daughter Elliott in 2002.
