EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa and TOWIE star Dan Osborne have named their baby daughter Ella Osborne. A beautiful name for what's sure to be a gorgeous child!

Here's all you need to know about the name!

Where does it come from?

Well, there seem to be a few theories. BabyCenter has its roots in English-Greek as a shortened form of Helene, meaning torch or light. SheKnows, meanwhile, suggests the name comes from Eleanor or Ellen, meaning beautiful fairy. Over on BabyNames, it's said to come from Germany and mean 'bright light'.

All of them are pretty beautiful meanings, right?!

Is it popular?

Yes! According to BabyCenter, the name has been among the top 30 girls' names every year since 2000. For 2014, it was ranked 12th most popular name for a little girl.

Are there any famous Ellas?

Well, legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald comes to mind first! There's also former X Factor contestant turned chart-topper Ella Henderson. Oh, and another singer, Ella Eyre. Perhaps this is an indication of what Baby Osborne will be when she grows up!

Mark Wahlberg, Ben Stiller and John Travolta all have daughters named Ella, while in the movie Ella Enchanted, the main character of Cinderella is named Ella.

Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton and 5ive singer Ritchie Neville named their first child together Ella last year.
