Yes I know - I'm British myself - I guess I didn't word my comment very well. So does that mean that Ellis is a girls' name in the US?

No its a male name, but not a very common one - its down in the 700s for boys. However its been used as a female name in certain shows like Grey's Anatomy (that show is notorious for giving girls boy names: Ellis, Addison, Teddy, Sloane, Morgan, Reed, etc...). The show's writer, Shonda Rimes, has a daughter named Emerson so I guess it runs in her system... Technically I guess people see Ellis as unisex in the US.
