The name Eloy is based on the futurist race of humans from the book The Time Machine by H. G. Wells (there spelled "Eloi"). Bornemann described the origin of the name of the band thus: "Wells describes in his book the situation of mankind about 800,000 years later, and 'Eloy' is a human race in his story. The Eloy in Wells' story have made a new start with the help of the time traveler. In a way, it was a new beginning for the human race. German rock bands in the late 1960s played mainly covers from other bands instead of playing their own compositions. Record deals for German bands were absolutely rare and German bands generally were considered to be second class bands in their own country. At that time it was a strong effort for a German band to come out with only their own compositions. It was a start into an unknown future, and from this point of view, comparable to the human race in Wells' story. That is why I got the idea to name the band 'Eloy'."

Bornemann reunited Eloy for its 40th anniversary in 2009. After a break of eleven years, the band released a new album called Visionary, aiming to recapture the spirit of the early years. A double DVD The Legacy Box was released in December 2010 and contains a number of videos and television recordings from all periods of the band, as well as a documentary of the band's history.

The band played at festivals in Germany and Switzerland in July 2011 with largely the same personnel as those on the 1994–1995 tour. The band was booked to headline the North East Art Rock Festival in June 2012 – its first North American concert – but had to cancel after Bornemann was injured in road accident in March. In 2017 and 2019 two new CDs based on the legend of Jeanne d'Arc were released.
