  1. We love the name Ellis as it is unique, has special meanings that relate to my husband and I, and it is the stadium where South Africa was able to come together in a time of need under Nelson Mandela (my husband is South African :).)

  2. We chose Ellis because it’s an old name, isn’t super common and short n sweet.
