EYLES Family HistoryRecorded in many spelling forms including: Eales, Ealles, Eeles, Eales, Eallis, Ellce, Ells, Eyles, and others, this is an English surname, but of Greek and biblical origins. It is derived from the medieval given name Elis, the Greek form of the Hebrew Elijah, meaning "Jehovah is God". This name was borne by a prophet, but it's popularity among Christians in the Middle Ages was from two sources. The first from the famous Crusades, when knights returning from their many efforts to free the Holy Land from the Muslims, would give their children names associated with Greece and the Bible, and secondly because it was a saints name.
