Elias is also the form most used in Sweden. We pronounce it as "Eh-LEE-us". Elis (EH-lees) is a Swedish short form of Elias. [noted -ed]

I am in love with a man with this name and I think it is a wonderful name. It's unique, but beautiful.

You see Elias a lot in the New Testament of the Bible in place of Elijah.

Canadian actor Elias Koteas is perhaps most famous for playing Casey Jones in the live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies.

Somewhat overused in Norway (and perhaps the rest of Scandinavia). Every single 5-year-old seem to have this name.

This is a wonderful and meaningful name. It suits a little boy well, and also a grown man. I only hope that, with the growing popularity of Biblical names, this doesn't become popular. I hate trendy names.

Though perhaps only American (contemporary?), this name may also be pronounced "ee LYE as," just as Eli is pronounced "EE lye" but would be "eh lee" in most European countries.

A famous bearer is Elias Andra, drummer for Julien-K and Dead by Sunrise.

I think Elias is such a fun name, I like the pronunciation eh-lie-as.
EqualityandLoveRall  5/20/2014
A superb, flawless name! Then again, I like most forms of "Elijah".
Ali Hassan  1/28/2015
A handsome and beautiful name.

It sounds strong and confident. I like its overall vibe as well the other form, Elijah. Also, its many pronunciations allow for individuality in the person named Elias.

Nice! Elijah and Elias and other forms are just wonderful.

I named my son Eliaz (eh-LEE-as) back in 2009, it means the Lord is my God.
Sum1  6/26/2016
I prefer this name over Elijah though Elijah is a good name as well. When it comes to choosing between the two, I would mainly pick Elias. (:

Also Arabic variant transcription of Ilyas (إلياس).
heyyyyyyyyyyyy  12/27/2016
I think this name sounds too feminine, along with Elijah.
leoBeyene2002  9/16/2017
I like Elias more then Elijah, mainly because Elijah is more popular, and Elias can also be shortened to Eli. I also like the spelling Ilyas, but people in the US would not be able to pronounce or spell Ilyas.

This may have been the character's surname, but "Elias" is what everyone calls Willem Dafoe's character in "Platoon."
erb816  10/1/2017
I like Elias, though I would mainly use it as a middle name. Mainly because I am an Atheist. Anyways, this name is one of my favorite male names.
