Vannah Elliot was named after two close friends of his father, Dr. William Law Van Horn, both doctors: a Dr. Vannah and a Dr. Elliott, according to a story told to me by my great Aunt Elizabeth Tanzik-Van Horn. These two doctors set up a scholarship fund for the Van Horn children to go to medical school at Tulane University after the sudden and unexpected death of their father in 1895.

And notes from his obituary:
