Meaning:Elm ridge or moor; Noble, famous
Elmore is a masculine name of Old English and Anglo-Saxon origin, from the age-old surname Ailmer, meaning “elm ridge or moor,” or “noble” and “famous.” While Elmore seems like a strait-laced title, its connection to elm trees makes it a name brimming with mysticism. In European folklore, the elm tree represents strength and longevity, likely because elms can grow to be the tallest trees native to northwestern Europe. In Celtic mythology, the elm tree symbolizes life, death, and rebirth and grows near passages to the Underworld and Otherworld. With its understated confidence and refined vintage appeal, Elmore suits the inquisitive baby who sees the magic in the world. And when baby is being their adorable cuddly selves, nicknames El and Morry will only add to your little sapling’s vibrant charm.
