Meaning & Origins

Probably the most successful of all the Old French names of Germanic origin that were introduced to England by the Normans. It is derived from Germanic wil ‘will, desire’ + helm ‘helmet, protection’. The fact that it was borne by the Conqueror himself does not seem to have inhibited its favour with the ‘conquered’ population: in the first century after the Conquest it was the commonest male name of all, and not only among the Normans. In the later Middle Ages it was overtaken by John, but continued to run second to that name until the 20th century, when the picture became more fragmented.
6th in the U.S.
Altered spelling of North German Ellrott, Ellrodt, perhaps a habitational name from Ellierode near Northeim, Lower Saxony, either of two places in Hesse named Ellingerode, or two lost places so named. In the U.S. this name is very frequent in GA, TN, and TX.
3,066th in the U.S.
