It's nice. A bit short.

The element "El" is actually Hamitic in origin. It was first used as a reference to a god by the Canaanites, the ancestors of the Phoenicians. It was integrated into Chaldean, the Semitic language spoken by Abraham, when the patriarch in question arrived in Canaan and met a king who blessed him in the name of El Elyon (God Most High). "El" is now a common element in the Hebrew language, particularly in names.

My name is El. One of the downfalls to it is that it sounds like the letter L and the woman's name Elle. I've had some confused looks when I tell people my name. (Some think I have either a woman's name or the same name as L from the anime/manga Death Note.) Also, the fact that it's the masculine definite article in Spanish cause some people to assume I have a Hispanic background, which I don't.

Still, I like my name. It's short, different without being bizarre, and has a cool meaning.

In Spanish El means 'he' and in Arabic El means 'the', I never thought El had use as a first name, I thought it could be used as parts of last names because my last name has El- in it and in my last name El- means 'the'.
