In this image the surname looks like May and not like Max. When other people see the same, this article should be renamed. Harry granger Talk contribs 09:07, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
I agree that it says "Ella Max". If it was "May", it would have the tail facing the other way. -- SaXon 10:44, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
Personally, I think it's Ella May. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 12:56, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
I think it's pretty clearly Ella May. The thing about having the tail facing the other way would bear more weight if the letters were lowercase, but as they're all uppercase, it's just a case of a crooked letter. There is no fourth branch for the X.
I have to agree there, there doesn't seem to be any leg on the x, which lends the idea that it's actually a y. I'll do some research and see if there's anything about a backwards y. PixieDragon (talk) 12:00, July 5, 2014 (UTC)
Since she married Cygnus Black I, shouldn't her name be changed to Ella Black nee Max/May? Kaesy Mereida Rowle (talk) 23:26, July 24, 2014 (UTC)
The scroll on which she is mentioned refers to her as "Ella May" (or "Ella Max" according to the wiki); thus the title itself should be "Ella Max" (or "May") because that's her name in canon. The name in the article already calls her "Ella Black". --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 01:34, July 25, 2014 (UTC)
