This is the first mention of a sexual relationship between Adam and his wife. Cain had already been conceived by the serpent prior to Adam having knowledge of his wife. Eve saw in Cain the fulfillment of the natural promise of Genesis 3:15, and looked on her first child as God Himself, the "Deliverer," Who would restore them to Eden. It is unusual for the mother to justify Cain's name by declaring "I have begotten a "MAN" with the Lord", when Cain was but a babe. To Eve, however, Cain was the "Man-child" Who would smite the Serpent. Eve did not claim to bear Cain by Adam but supposed he was gotten, acquired, or created with the Lord.

bring forth the child ...bring forth suggests giving birth rather than getting pregnant ?

that meant that the god that had sex with her had gotten her pregnant and that she will experience labor (pain).

First, its pronounced 'El-yone" not Alien.
And Hebrew is an archetypal language.
The concept of 'alien' is anything strange or different, having nothing really to do with aliens up in the sky. The word entered common vernacular before people started associated the word with men in the sky.
Also, its a name of G-d with great kabbailistic nuances.
This is coincidence.
