1. A first name commonly used in the American South.
2. Elvis Aaron Presley, born January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. He is often called "the King (of Rock n' Roll)" by his fans and has done famous songs like Love Me Tender and Hound Dog (even though Elvis wasn't the first to sing the latter; and Love Me Tender is basically "Aura Lee" with words). Elvis had a significant influence on the world of music and is a pop culture icon, but unfortunately he died from drug abuse at his Graceland home on August 16, 1977.
Elvis Presley certainly wasn't the only kid named Elvis down in Mississippi in the 30's.
