Meaning of the baby name ELLEN.

  

ELLEN.  A Scottish form of Greek Helene (q.v.), meaning "light." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  But see note below.  Usage: America, Australia, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales.  Also see Ellin.

... Some consider this the same as Helen, and indeed in Spanish Helen and Ellen are both represented by Elena.  A correspondent of N. Q. says the name Ellen has no possible connexion with Helen, which is older by a thousand years at least, and that Ellen is the feminine of Alain, Alan, or Allan.  But it may be the same as Ailean. (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882)
