I just came to know there's a singer named Elohim

Isn't having God's name as stage name a blasphemy?

    As a side note, the word elohim has other meanings as well, so as an example, it might not be the best choice. – rosends Apr 30 '18 at 16:30
  • @rosend any set of letters/sounds can have multiple meanings as well. None ttbomk are inherently holy – Double AA Apr 30 '18 at 16:31

    Why do you think it’s a problem? The singer in question isn’t Jewish. – DonielF Apr 30 '18 at 17:42
  • I have never seen any jewish or gentile having such name. having a name like Elohim is a blasphemy. imagine that the person is in a synagogue and someone calls him . hey 'Elohim'. wouldn't it sound weird? – user68689 Apr 30 '18 at 19:14

The name Elohim is not used uniquely for Gcd.

In the Bible it sometimes refers to judges. Other times - Bnei Elohim - it refers to angels or special people.

Seems like it's becoming a popular name, based on the Wikipedia disambiguation page

Elohim may also refer to:

  • Elohim (gods), "Sons of El" in Canaanite mythology
  • Elohim (Alpha Blondy album)
  • Elohim (Aka Moon album)
  • Elohim, a species of extraterrestrials that created life on Earth in the UFO religion Raëlism
  • The Elohim, a race of godlike beings in the fantasy series
  • The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen R. Donaldson
  • Elohim, an indie pop musician
  • Brasheedah Elohim, American-Israeli women's professional basketball player

  • Elohim City, Oklahoma, a private community in Adair County, Oklahoma

Point being that while it feels repulsive to use Gcd's name, in this case - Elohim - it only sounds like Gcd's name.
