Elmo, Utah is a "small, dispersed agricultural community east of U-10 and eight miles north of Huntington. Elmo was settled in 1908 by people from Cleveland, although it was filed upon as early as 1904. The origin of the name is uncertain, but folklore suggests a reference to a popular novel of the day, St. Elmo." [1]

Wikipedia (http://www.wikipedia.com: accessed 3 March 2010), "Elmo, Utah."

Another version of the origin of the name of Elmo is that it was derived from the first letter of the last name of the four families that settled there. (Erickson, Larson, Mortensen, and Oviatt)
