"It's my son's name. It means 'elf-like friend'

"Other than my father who shares the same name and my grandfather who shares it as a middle name, I've never officially met someone with the same name. I've met people who knew someone with that name once in awhile and I had a boss at my high school job who claimed that he named his son Elwin. Yet when attending college classes or speaking to business or doctor's office personel, I often have my name pronounced Alvin or Edwin or even Eldwin." Jun. 5, 2013:
