The name Ella means lots of different things. Some people think it means "light" and others say it means "entire", "other", or even "goddess". Its origin is greek.
Most people don't know of the name. With the name Ella comes shyness. Its very common that someone with the name Ella isn't a very bold person. They are very quiet.
But they are really nice once you get to know them. Most people can't remember the name Ella most of the time. Ella is a beautiful name full of meaning.

Ella means Bright light or Torch. I named my daughter this name because she was my bright light. I spelled it Ellah this name! Also realize that One name can have different meaning's in different cultures/countries. Understand?

Hey. Can I just say that I'm called Ella, and the last thing I am is shy!!!! I am a loud, dramatic, proud, passionate person. Shy I am not!!! For me I think the meaning that corresponds most with me as an Ella is the meaning  "light"/"torch".
