Maybe they have secret temple names, and use a secret handshake.
But I doubt it. :)
I worked for a call center where some of my outgoing calls were to people named Jesus. I didn't know going into that job that Jesus is pronounced "Hay-su."
So ... when the person on the other end of the line said hello, I'd say back, Hello, I'm calling to talk to Jesus. They'd say, "What?" I'd say it again or something like, "Is Jesus there?"
All the people sitting around my cubicle would giggle in laughter. Finally someone told me it was because I was asking to speak to Jesus, instead of Hay-su. It cracked me up too once they told me that. It did sound pretty funny.

"Elohim" is just a stage name. His full stage name is "Elohim Omuhgawd."
His real birth name is Virgil T. Godfrey. ("T" is for Tiberius)
"How do you know this, Wally Prince?" you might ask.
Simple. When I went through the temple for my first time, I got "Elohim" as my new name. "No forkin' wayyyy!" I exclaimed. "I'm Elohim."
The guy behind the veil didn't believe me until I showed him my new-name slip. "Do me a miracle," the guy says. Turns out I ain't got no super powers. But the way the world is I figured that don't mean I ain't the real Elohim.
Anyhowz, I got curious, so I started digging and found some things out in the Akashic Wikipedia. The original Elohim was born as one Virgil Tiberius Godfrey on Planet Hubkap, near unto Kolob. Due to a freak laboratory accident he became a god-like being and decided to turn it into a cosmic stage act. He never liked the name Virgil much, so he decided to call himself "Elo Him Ohmugawd, the Magnificent!"
When he got more famous, performing in the original "Las Vegas" in a galaxy far, far away, it was just shortened to "Elohim."
First, Christ has no middle name. Nor does he have a last name, the single name is Jesus. Christ is a title not a name. There is NO "H" middle. About the only person with a single letter for a middle name was President Truman.
I was at a camp once where I had a roommate with first name and a last name both of only three letters. In college I had a roommate also without a middle name and his first and last names were each only four letters - and I believe he is the only living person with the that first and last name. My name, excluding spaces and roman numerals, is over 30 letters.
BTW, the reason for the moniker "Jesus H. Christ" is simply used to avoid taking the Lord's name in vain. Perhaps someone actually has such a name.
