From the use of that type of elbow in drainage lines and sewer connections where the line meets the street. Used to go into the main line.

No, the noun 'elbow' is a common noun, a general word for any joint of the arm or a device resembling such a joint. A proper noun is the name of a specific person, place, or thing, for example: Elbow, SK Canada Elbow Street, Providence RI Elbow Inn, Elbow Lake, MN

the scientific name for the skin on the elbow is called a weenis. The name of the actual elbow (meaning the pointy part you can see) is called the olecranon.

Olecranon process is technically the anatomical name for where the elbow is located.
