Is Ellie’s last name hardly known? Yes and no
If you are a fan of The Last of UsYou won’t be surprised to learn that Williams is Ellie’s last name. After all, there were references to this in the Japanese manual for the original release of The Last of Us. There is also the fact that in Left Behind, Ellie types her last name into a computer and there it is revealed that it is an 8-letter name, which pointed to it being Williams.
That said, until now, no member of Naughty Dog has publicly named the character Ellie Williams. On the contrary, in The Last of Us: Part II and in a part of the first game we can see that Joel’s last name is Miller. For this reason, many left the door open to the possibility that Ellie’s last name was another and did not consider Williams as canon.
In this way, Druckmann’s statements on Twitter put an end to all discussion or speculation: Ellie’s last name is Williams and that is canon.
