According to the Bible, Ephraim is the second son of Joseph (son of Jacob and Rachel). Joseph’s eleven brothers sold him into slavery in Egypt out of jealousy, but he was released from prison when he won the Pharaoh’s favor through his gift for prophecy, and the Pharaoh gave him as his wife Asenath, daughter of the priest Potiphera. Genesis 41:52 says of Ephraim’s birth, “[Joseph] said, ‘God has given me children in the land of my trouble,’ so he named his second son Ephraim.’”

The name Ephram is the Hebrew word for ‘give children,’ or is sometimes translated as fruitful.

He and his sister Eirika both have names similar to common English names with an added “i” (Erika and Ephram)

Eirika’s name is the Scandinavian spelling for ‘Erica’ which means “heather” in Latin. It is also the feminine form of the name ‘Eric’ which means “ever ruler” in Old Norse, from ‘ei’ (ever) and ‘rikr’ (ruler).

Eliwood’s name possibly comes from the Germanic name elements “elf” and ‘wood,’ meaning ‘wood of elves,’ which might be a reference to Avalon, the legendary island where King Arthur supposedly went to be healed after his last battle. Alternatively, the name ‘Elwood’ means ‘elder tree forest’ in Old English.
