No, eggs are ovals. An ellipse has two axes of symmetry; an egg has one axis of symmetry. An ellipse is a special case of an oval. The word oval actually comes from the Latin for egg (ovum)

Technically speaking, although the egg is oval in two dimensions, it is a 3D object, and is thus called an ovoid; an ovoid is an oval in three dimensions
