Elvis

Elvis m
English (esp. U.S.): of obscure derivation, made famous by the American rock singer Elvis Presley (1935–77). It may be derived from the surname of an ancestor, or it may have been made up, but it was certainly not chosen for the singer in anticipation of a career in show business, for his father's name was Vernon Elvis Presley. A St Elvis, apparently an Irishman of the 6th century, is also known as Elwyn, Elwin, Elian, and Allan.
