What does the name Eloise mean?

What are some pretty girl names that are kind of like Eloise?

I am looking for something cute, classy, elegant, not too common.

I will except other suggestions.

Some more examples of names I like... Margo, Sonya, Evangalion, Lidia, and Olive.

I also care a lot about the meaning of the name.

So anything you find fitting the traits I described is welcome.

Um.. but be creative. Nothing like Bella cause it means beauty. Or Rose because Roses are elegant.

I also won't mimd out of the box stuff. The more the better.

I will pick my favorite answer.

    Meaning/Origin of Eloise:

    Eloise Pronunciation: EH-loh-eez

    Origin of the name Eloise:

    Of uncertain origin and meaning, some believe it is from the Germanic Helewidis, a compound name composed of the elements haila (hale, hearty, sound) and vid (wide). Others believe it is a feminine form of Louis, which is from the Old High German Hluodowig (famous in war), a compound name composed from the elements hluod (famous) and wīga (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 an abbess of a nunnery.
