Baby Name Eloise

Meaning of Eloise - What does the name Eloise means?
Gender: Girl Name
Origin: French
Name Meaning: Of uncertain origin and meaning, some believe it is derived from the Old Germanic Helewidis, a compound name composed of the elements haila (hale, hearty, sound) and vid (wide). Others think it is a feminine form of Louis, which is from the Old High German Hluodowig, a compound name composed from the elements hluda (famous), and wiga (war): hence, "famous in war." The name was borne by the wife (d. 1164) of French theologian Peter Abelard (1079-1142), whose secret marriage was avenged by Eloise's uncle in the manner of Abelard being beaten and castrated. He became a monk and Eloise became the abbess of a nunnery
