Has anybody an idea, how to avoid the space in front of the "George Elliot" include?--Pflastertreter (talk) 15:19, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Looks, as if i could fix it. --Pflastertreter (talk) 15:21, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Elliot vs. Elliott[edit]

Basically those today with the name Elliot came from the Northumbrian; nothern end is in the borders of Scotland. Name derived for Elwald meaning in high German an owned/inhabited forest measured in Scottish ells, as opposed to low German Elwold meaning a own wood(s), were the name Ellwood in Cumbria is derived from. The Elliott of England mainly derive their name from Wm de Aliot, of France, which settled in Southern UK, around St Germain/Port Eliot, then later added the extra "l" and "t", but the Elliott of the rest of the world are from planting Scots or Ulster/Scots into the English Plantations of the world, such as Australia, New Zealand, America, Barbados, and so on.

Why is ELLIOTT redirected here? Why isn't ELLIOT redirected to ELLIOTT? Who gets to make this choice, anyway? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Simkiott (talkcontribs) 16:04, 10 December 2009 (UTC) I kno right?! they r just so annoyin! i need elliott NOT "elliot" AMEN brother (or sister) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:53, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Actually, this question has merit. "Elliott" is a more common spelling than "Elliot" (and makes more sense, but that's a matter of personal taste on my part). It's only natural that "Elliott" be the article name. --Konaya (talk) 20:36, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Female name?[edit]

The article currently says: "Although the given name was historically given to males, females named Elliot have seen an increase in recent years." This statement seems overbroad. To the best of my knowledge, only one notable female has Elliot as a given name (Elliot Reid, a character in Scrubs). Can anyone name any other notable women (real or fictional) with this name, or a reliable source which says that the name is becoming popular as a woman's given name? If not, I believe the aforementioned sentence should be rephrased. Richwales (talk · contribs) 05:39, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I can. Sting's daughter Coco Sumner (20) was born Eliot Paulina Sumner. -andy (talk) 16:42, 7 April 2011 (UTC)


TNT's Leverage, his name is Eliot Spencer. It's a given name, not an example of a surname. (talk) 15:34, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Clan Elliot[edit]

Should this article be merged with Clan Elliot? or is the distinction between the Scottish Clan and the name alone being made? Je.rrt (talk) 00:55, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
