Last name origin & meaning:

  • English : from a Middle English personal name, Elyat, Elyt. This represents at least two Old English personal names which have fallen together: the male name A{dh}elgēat (composed of the elements a{dh}el ‘noble’ + Gēat, a tribal name; see Jocelyn), and the female personal name A{dh}elḡ{dh} (composed of the elements a{dh}el ‘noble’ + ḡ{dh} ‘battle’). The Middle English name seems also to have absorbed various other personal names of Old English or Continental Germanic origin, as for example Old English Ælfweald (see Ellwood).
  • English : from a pet form of Ellis.
  • Scottish : Anglicized form of the originally distinct Gaelic surname Elloch, Eloth, a topographic name from Gaelic eileach ‘dam’, ‘mound’, ‘bank’. Compare Eliot.
