It is interesting that Eleazar or El'azar means "My God has helped." My grandmother, Evelyn Holmes, went through great hardship, and it was she who named one of her children Elza.

She was very religious and read the Bible all the time, and I just wonder now if the Bible was where she found that name. Family tradition says that she made up the name Elza.

She had nine children, losing four of them in infancy. She belonged to the Episopal Church.

Thanks for that,
Brian
