Elektra is an Ancient Greek female name which comes from Ancient Greek elektron meaning “amber” which seems to be derived from an uncertain origin. I’ve also seen it listed as meaning “shining, bright” but I can’t say how accurate that is. In Greek mythology, Elektra is the name of the daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra who helped her brother Orestes avenge the death of their father, as well the name of several nymphs in Greek mythology, including one of the Pleiades.
