What does `elt` mean in Rust or in programming

I have seen elt being used as a parameter/variable name in Rust in some places.

For example repeat in std::iter - Rust and a quick search on Rust repository Search · elt · GitHub.

I understand it's just a placeholder name. But does it have any meaning?

I guess it's shorthand for element.
