Exoteric interpretation of name-Elk, protection, yew tree/bow.
Esoteric interpretation of name-The four cosmic harts that bite constantly at the world tree, the protective power of the divine twins[Alcis-Tacitus], the valkyrjur, the power of human life striving toward the world of the Aesir, the Bifrost rainbow bridge, the rune of consciousness and awareness. The shape of the rune is also the form in which the Germanic peoples communicate with the gods.

Runic body posture-Stand upright with arms stretched out upwards and to the sides.
Old English Rune Poem:
Elk-grass most often dwells in a fen,/grows in water,
harshly wounds/marks with blood
any warrior/who tries to take it
