Eli means "my God" in Latin. Also Eli Eli lama sabacthani means "My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me".

Sorry Brad, not in Latin but in Hebrew. And the second sentence is in Aramaic.

I've always liked this name, but it sounds very young to me. I'd probably use Elijah and Eli as a nickname, even though I prefer the open-ended meaning of "my God." It's very specific yet open to interpretation, especially as an agnostic.
