Is Ellie Goulding Jewish?

Ellie Goulding is Jewish. The website "Shalom Life" called GouldingThe newest Jewish Brit to skyrocket to the top of the U.S. music charts since the late Amy Winehouse." However Ellie Goulding is not of Jewish ancestry.

Goulding is the second of four children to Tracey Clark and Arthur Goulding. Goulding began playing the clarinet at the age of nine, and at 14 began learning guitar. She started songwriting at the age of 15 and while in college she won a singing competition.

Goulding was invited to sing at the April 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton where she performed a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” at their wedding reception at Buckingham Palace.

Known as an avid runner who takes to the streets for up to six miles a day, Goulding is allegedly in a relationship with American producer and DJ, Sonny Moore.

  1. How do you know she is Jewish? I saw an answer from another source that says she is not Jewish.

    2. well i was named after elliott gould and he is jewish. elliott is a very common jewish name. it comes from the hebrew word "el" meaning god. gould is also a very common jewish/english adaptation of gold or god. his name is very similar to hers. i'm willing to bet that she is indeed jewish. i've also met jews who claim to be athiests so religion doesn't matter. jews will identify themselves as jews even if they don't practice the religion. most of them consider themselves a race not a religion.

  2. She isn't Jewish. Just another case of one website making an error and others unfortunately copying it (i.e. ShalomLife).

  3. Goulding is a Jewish surname. So she must have some Jewish ancestry as long as she wasnt adopted

  4. I think she is -- the first publication to report it was Glamour. Yes, it is a celebrity journal, but it is of a rank (like People) that is especially careful with its factchecking -- I know this from friends of mine who have freelanced for Glamour. There's the off chance that this was written by some junior staffer who perhaps is Jewish and jumped to conclusions -- but even in that case, I doubt it would remain on the web now as is. http://www.glamourmagazine.co.uk/celebrity/biographies/ellie-goulding
    And there is a Jewish community in Hereford

  6. Why doesn't someone just go and ask her?

  7. She should have just went with Ellie. Her Manager should be fired. I can't take her music serious with her last name. Doesn't sound attractive.

  8. Please updated the article. She is not Jewish
    There are 1000s of British/Irish Catholics and Protestants with Goulding as surname.

    In fact, Goulding is British/Irish surname. she is of Christian origin

    1. Her mother isn't Jewish. So that answers the question. The mother's religion dictates the children's denomination.

  11. It absolutely kills me that they say EG can't be jewish . . . because she's Christian.

    But I know Jews who are Christian. The word Christ is a the Greek form of Messiah or Moschiak.

    There's people who are Jewish by ethnicity, either of (recent) European origin, making them Ashkenazis, or from middle east origin, making them Sephardic. My being Irish has nothing to do w/my religion (and I'm not Catholic anymore, icarumba). That's my heritage or ethnicity. You can be Jewish and believe (only) in the Old Testament. Or Jewish and Christian. Or Jewish and a friggin atheist. Many many Jews converted to Catholicism at the point of a sword or gun in the middle ages and later. So . . . those people stopped being Jewish, and automagically became of the ethnicity of whatever country they were residing in??? This is all so stupid.
    Jesus was a Jew. Because he was denounced by the religious leaders of his day he stopped being a Jew??? Oi vay!
