Or a contraction of Eli Melech. Never heard it used as a personal name,
just the first thing to pop into my head.

I was wondering if the given name Elek could be a Hungarian or Romanian variant
of Ezsak or Isaak. I'm looking for the latter two names but came across the
name Elek in a transcription of a gravestone. It's wishful thinking that Elek
could be Isaak.
