What's in a Name?

I just learned from my mother that she named me after Elaine Skorodin, a classmate of hers at the Chicago Musical College back in the 1950s. Skorodin had an impressive career as a soloist. She studied with Heifetz and was a teacher of Louis Farrakahn. (That link you just passed was to a newspaper article from 1995 about Farrakahn as a violinist.)
