Where did your husband find this name? That would help to track down if it is a recent creation or has a longer history.

P.S. A bit of quick Googling seems to show that this name was created for the character Ephrael Stern in a game called Warhammer. I can't find any references on short notice to the name having existed before 1999 when the character seems to have been created. The references on the Web to the spelling Ephreal all seem to be places where fans of the game have misspelled Ephrael! So I think this was a name created by the authors of the game. There's a good chance that they did this by deliberately blending Ephraim and Raphael, or similar names, but it does seem to be a name created in 1999.
