Meaning and name origin
Eloi \e-loi\ as a boy's name is of Hebrew and Latin origin, and the meaning of Eloi is "high; elect". Eloi is a variant of Eli (Hebrew); biblical: Eli was a priest and judge who brought up the prophet Samuel. Also a variant of Eligius (Latin): saint Eligius was a seventh-century French metalworker and engraver of coins who later founded a monastery and a convent.
Eloi is not a popular first name for males and an equally uncommon surname or last name for all people (2000 U.S. Census).
