Elon Origin and Meaning

The name Elon is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "oak tree".
The boys' name Elon is best known today as the name of Elon Musk, eccentric billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX. With Canadian singer Grimes, Elon Musk has a son with an even more unusual name, X Æ A-12.

Before Musk arrived on the scene, Elon was the name of a Biblical judge. Long obscure, naming your son Elon today would signal an admiration for Musk rather than the Good Book.

Taken on its own merits, Elon is a sleek, attractive name with a strong nature meaning that's rare but also has deep roots: A total winner. But now that shiny name is feeling a bit....Musky.
