The name Ellie is traditionally the pet form of the female name Eleanor; however, it can and has been used as a nickname for any girl's name beginning with the element of "El", eg Elizabeth, Ellen, Eloise, Elaine, Elle, etc. Ellie has been used as a stand-alone given name for over a century, but its popularity as a name substitute has really increased throughout this century. Unless the name is tied to a specific form already, then there is essentially no etymological meaning to the name. However, several 'EL' names (such as Eleanor) are derived from the Germanic word 'Ali' meaning 'yes, foreign' so this is probably the best meaning we can give to Ellie's name.
