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
  • @DoubleAA Let’s say that someone named themselves the Shem Havaya as it’s actually pronounced (not that we know what that is). Would you say that’s a better example? – DonielF May 1 '18 at 3:29
  • @donielf no I would not. there's still a very high chance it means something else in some other language or context, and even if it doesn't currently it certainly could – Double AA May 1 '18 at 11:04

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

See also

  • 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.
