Ella is a name for girls that has origins in German, English, and Hebrew, and it can be translated variously as “other,” “fairy maiden,” and “goddess.” Want more evidence that Ella could be the next Emma? In 2017, George and Amal Clooney gave their baby the same name. This names beauty is effortless and never goes out of style.
Her famous forebears include the equally revolutionary Ella Fitzgerald, Baker and Eyre (jazz singer), Baker (African-American civil rights activist), and Eyre (English vocalist). Ella the Elephant, an illustrated children’s book, as well as the animated TV series Enchanted (based on this name), starring Anne Hathaway, may provide parents with further motivation.
