Why would you so assume? – msh210 Jun 23 '13 at 19:26
What's with these wierd spellings "Elozor"? – Hacham Gabriel Jun 23 '13 at 19:34
@HachamGabriel: Alef-segol = E. Lamed-sh'va-nach = l. Ayin-kamatz = o. Zayin = z. Kamatz = o. Resh = r. – msh210 Jun 24 '13 at 0:09
@HachamGabriel, I guess because it sounds pretty much like the vowel in (American) "cot", or, depending on one's pronunciation of Hebrew, pretty much like the first vowel in "color". Either way, "o" is reasonable. – msh210 Jun 24 '13 at 3:38

I know I'm going to get minuses for this, but I am almost positive that there is no source for her name.
