I have recently read an article about a young Russian woman called Elia. It could either be a Russian name which isn't directly related to the Italian Elia, or the Italian masculine name could have been used as a first name for a girl. After all, Elia *does* look pretty feminine to many people.

I use this as a nickname. (My full name is Eliana.) I pronounce it Eh-lyah. I didn't know it was a male name in Italian. *blush* It seems very feminine to me too.

Elia was the pen name of Charles Lamb (1775-1834), an English essayist who has been referred to as the most lovable figure in English literature. "Essays of Elia" was a collection of essays written by him.

The Dutch pronunciation for Elia is: AY-lee-ah. [noted -ed]

Italian pronunciation:

EYH-Lyah

"E" is said quite nearly to "Hey" (exlcuding the "H"). Stress your "I" to "EE." "A" as in "Father." It turns out to be "Lee-Ah," but when spoken normally it typically becomes "Lyah." [noted -ed]

Elia is a masculine name? It sounds very feminine and pretty to me, and has only ever been listed on the charts for the US and France as a feminine name. Eli or Elias is a more masculine choice in my opinion.

Elia is also the Georgian form of Elijah. It is an older form there, though: Ilia is the modern form in Georgia, and is also very common there. Elia is fairly rare, especially when compared to the popularity of Ilia.

In Georgian, Elia is written as: ელია.

MUCH prefer the ItLian pronounciation (E-Lyuh)

Someone needs to add 'Eliah' to the database. The spelling is more masculine.
I see the name as male definetly but the spelling of Eliah makes it more male and strong

I ccant find Eliah on here ):!!!!!!
