Boys named Elon grow up to drive fast cars. Or invent them. But while Elon Musk might have invented one of the coolest car brands around, he didn’t invent the name Elon. It’s actually a pretty popular name in other parts of the world, but it definitely belongs on the list of rare baby names here. Elon is a Hebrew name meaning “tree” or “oak tree”, and it features prominently in the bible. Elon was the name of the biblical leader of the Israelites in the Book of Judges. We have a feeling that the name will continue to grow in popularity in the US (people sure do love their Tesla’s, don’t they?), so if you want to get in on it while it’s still rare, now’s your chance.
