I was told Elric is old Tutonic. Wikipedia says it's Scottish Gaelic. It has been spelled Alric, Ulric, Ulrich, Elrick and other variations. It gained some popularity from the Michael Moorcock novels 'Elric of Melnibone'. I believe it means 'King', but this could be inaccurate.

- Personal experiences with the name Elric: | Edit
My son was named Elric in 1991. Since then I've met two other Elrics. Once, in a toy store with my son, I heard a man calling out his name. This alarmed me, until I found the aisle the man was on and saw he was with his own son, also named Elric.
