A female given name from Ancient Greek.

Etymology: Medieval English variant of Helen, from Ἑλένη; also used as a variant of Eleanor.
Ellen is a female given name, a diminutive of Elizabeth, Eleanor, Elena and Helen. Ellen was the 609th most popular name in the U.S. and the 17th in Sweden in 2004.
Ellen is an American television sitcom that aired on the ABC network from March 29, 1994 to July 22, 1998, consisting of 109 episodes. The title role of Ellen Morgan, played by stand-up comedian Ellen DeGeneres, was a neurotic bookstore owner in her thirties. The series centered on Ellen's dealing with her quirky friends, her family and the problems of daily life. The series is notable for being the first one in which the main character came out as gay, which DeGeneres' character did in the 1997 episode "Puppy Episode". This event received a great deal of media exposure, ignited controversy, and prompted ABC to place a parental advisory at the beginning of each episode. The series' theme song, "So Called Friend" is by Scottish band Texas. A running gag was that each episode had a distinct opening credits sequence, resulting from Ellen's ongoing search for the perfect opening credits.

Ellen DeGeneres from Ellen DeGeneres daytime talk show in 2006. Kathy Griffin explained Kathy Griffin wished there was more of a comradery between female comics. My issue with Ellen DeGeneres is simple, you know, the guys in comedy are so good about sticking together. I feel sad that women don't support each other the way the guys do. Joan [ Rivers ] and I would talk about this all the time. Patriarchy pits us against each other.
