Ela more (addressed to men) or Ela mori (addressed to women) is a very unceremonious way of addressing your mates, similar to "Come now". "Ela" is come" (imperative) and "more" or "mori" stand for "pal", "mate", but the real meaning of the word is "silly, foolish".

In the Bible we have the parable of the foolish virgins and the word used for "foolish" in the Greek original is "mores".
