The name Elgar is a boy's name of Anglo-Saxon origin meaning "spearman".
A pared-down version of the Anglo-Saxon names Æthelgar and Ælfgar. It's very rarely used, but might appeal for the connection to English classical composer Edward Elgar, or just for its distinctive vintage sound, as an alternative to Edgar.
