Eli (एलि) is the name of a mountain, according to the historical poem Mūṣikavaṃśa by Atula dealing with the royal lineage of North Kerala in roughly 1000 verses.—The Mūṣikavaṃśa begins with an account of a pregnant queen, guarded by her family priest, escaping the animosity of sage Jāmadagnya Rāma, more popularly known as Paraśurāma (‘Rāma with axe’) in the West coast of India, reaching the mountain called Eli.

Note: There is the mountain called Ezhimala in Malayalam in north Kerala which very much fits into the description of the Eli Mountain in the poem.
