Most sources state that this name means "God resides" in Hebrew. This could be correct, as the first element is indeed clearly derived from Hebrew el meaning "God". However, I can't find any Hebrew verb that means "to reside" and looks physically similar to the second element. Instead, then, it might be possible that the name Eldar means "pearl of God", since I discovered that there is a Hebrew noun dar meaning "pearl".
