El (Hebrew: אל) is an abbreviation of the Hebrew word Elohim (Hebrew: אלהים). "El" is often used as part of a name, such as Elijah, Joel, and Samuel. With regards to God, "El" is normally used in conjunction with other words, as in "El-Shaddai", which greatly expands the scope of God's relationship with mankind.
