My mother bears this name. She was told by her mother it was derived from Queen Elizabeth (El) & Queen Mary (Ma) of Britain = Elma. I have also seen this explanation other places on the web. [noted -ed]

I thought this name was lovely; it reminded me of elm trees; it's just generally elegant and noble, and then all of a sudden I thought of

(you don't have to read the end of the sentence, it jarred me away from the name and I don't want it to jar you too)

Elmer Fudd.

Of course "Elma" and "Elmer" aren't pronounced identically in most languages, or in a lot of dialects of English, so hopefully I'll be able to forget it and go back to hero-worshipping this name.
