Elektron and Erlena


Elektron is simply the Russian word for electron, and meant to represent Soviet scientific progress. Not exactly a name I’d recommend anyone use for a real child!

Erlena means “the era of Lenin,” derived from the elements era Lenina. The male form was Erlen. As far as these invented names go, Erlena sounds somewhat normal.
