Tam, that's exactly why I think the soul names are non-literal. I don't think anyone can be accurately summed up in one word. Summarized or described broadly, yes, but no one meaning is ever going to encompass everything a person is. If, however, a soul name is a just a random(ish) sound then the elf is free to define it how they want and, more importantly, for the definition to shift as their spirit has experiences and changes.
