There is a drasha that says that "Why do you ask my name" is actually the answer. Meaning, my name is not important. It is ever-changing, the yetzer hara changes forms in every generation. (I think its the sichos Mussar but I could be wrong.)

Because Elisha "hugged" him when he was reviving him.
Also, before the child was born, he said, "in a year from now, you will be 'hugging' a child." (chovekes-embracing) (or something along those lines?).

Yes I remember that! The yetzer hara says don't look into me too closely, don't stop to think or question or ask my name. Not pshat though Smile

Where in davening do you have the words in reverse order of the aleph beis followed by words starting with the ender letters? (thank you Rabbi Reisman for pointing this out!)

Shabbat mussaf amida is with the words in reverse order of alef beis - "tikanta shabbat ratzita korbenoteha..."

But I don't know about words starting with end letters - what do you mean by that?

You got it!

The ender letters (sofit in Hebrew) are kof/chof, mem, nun, peh, tzadee

Look at the words following the "aleph" word in the sequence you found in musaf

At bash

The first night of Pesach is the same as Tisha b'av (aleph-taf) , 2nd night the same as Shavuos (beis shin) , 3rd is rosh Hashana (gimmel, reish), etc.
