it is listed as a 1 syllable and i asked a person with this name how they pronounced it and they said like mail. they also said they got thier name from the tanakh. I know that in Hebrew there is a word El which is not El meaning God> i am alittle confused on what you meant here, mostly the "el which is not el" part. i'm not trying to be rude or mean. i'm just confused just curious, is your name hebrew? where did you get it from?
