Traditionally a boy’s name, Ellison is a gender-neutral title of British origin and means “son of Ellis.” Ellis has a Hebrew counterpart, Elijah, meaning "Yahweh is God," who was a prophet and healer from the Book of Kings. Ellison offers a fresh sound different from other Ellie-style names—and the popular name Alison—and is ideal for an innovative character like baby. This unique name will undoubtedly help baby Ellison stand out as they embark on life’s great adventure!
