I just came to know there's a singer named Elohim
Isn't having God's name as stage name a blasphemy?

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.
