This is my husband's name and while a bit biased, I love it! It is classic and dignified, not at all trendy.

The most memorable Elwood (perhaps the only Elwood) in popular culture is Elwood Blues of Saturday Night Live sketches and the film The Blues Brothers.

Elwood Blues was played by comedian Dan Aykroyd; he always wore dark sunglasses, a suit, and a black hat. In the film The Blues Brothers, Elwood and his brother, Jake, are on a mission to save the Catholic children's home where they were raised.

Goodness, goodness. The name Elwood was borne by the main character in the movie, and play, "Harvey," a story about a man and his friend, a pooka who's a six-foot-tall bunny rabbit.

This name always reminds me of the lovable Elwood P. Dowd, played by James Stewart.

The cartoon character Arthur Reed lives in Elwood City, and he rocks out loud.

Chuck Yeager, the legendary test pilot, has this as his middle name.

I don't think this would be a good name for child--why? He would be mocked for having the word 'wood' in his name once he hits the Middle School/High School, and especially mocked about L shaped wood.

This name is so hopelessly old fashioned. I can't imagine anyone naming their kid this today.

This name is ugly and old-fashioned. It also makes me think of the art website Elfwood. You might as well name your other kid Deviantart.

The drummer from Rush, Neil Peart, has Elwood as a middle name. But Elwood is spelled with two L's.

I like this very very much... as a middle name only! It would be extremely strange as a first name, it would most likely made fun of. I do like the sound and the meaning is great, especially because it reminds me of where I grew up, a place with some of the oldest/largest trees in the world. Nathanael Elwood would sound good with my last name!
