Why the name Elephant ?

Elephant, the ever gentle and wise animal, exemplifies focused power and strength.

Just hearing the word ‘elephant’ evokes power, honor, stability, patience. In places where they live, the elephant is a symbol used to bring luck, fertility, protection and is thought of as a blessing upon all new projects.

But beyond that, we simply love elephants!
