- Lutheran (of or pertaining to the theology of Martin Luther or its followers)
- Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Combination of "Evangelical", which was Martin Luther's term of his theology and "Lutheran", which was originally a derogatory term used of his followers. Later, when the movement split into fractions, the term "Evangelical Lutheran" came to mean the followers of Luther's original teaching. From that it has gradually been shortened back to "Lutheran" but "Evangelical Lutheran" is still widely used by the Lutheran churches.
