Ella Meaning and Origin

The name Ella has two different origins and meanings, in German, the name Ella means “completely”, while in English Ella means “fairy maiden”. Alternatively, some sources state that Ella has roots in Greek mythology, but upon further research, this appears to be just confusion with the name Helle or Hellas. In modern Hebrew Ella, may mean goddess. It is also used as a short form for names like Eleanor or Elizabeth. Ella has seen a revival in the last decade, becoming a popular given name for girls in English-speaking countries as well as in Israel.
