I like how this name looks, but not how it sounds. I think it sounds best pronounced Ee-LIE-jah.

That name is so stupid.

I don't think saying "This name is so stupid" is useful to other visitors. It's just callous and ignorant. I love this name, by the way, and think it's strong, heroic and handsome.

My nephew's name is Elijah. I have to be honest that I never liked this name. It sounds so old fashioned. Of course I am growing to like it because he is my nephew. I would never use the name for my son.

I like this name a lot, and the nickname Eli is really sexy.
-- alliyah1  2/19/2006
I love this name. I love the spelling and I love how it sounds. Plus it has the great nickname Eli.

I just love this name. Masculine, rolls smoothly off the tongue, and it's a name you can grow up with.

I like the name, but I'm not sure if I would ever use it. It seems too feminine to me. It reminds of "Eliza".

I love this name. It is so handsome. I would definitely use it. I like Elijah William/William Elijah.

I personally think it sounds better pronounced EL-ee-yuh, but ee-LY-zha sounds good too.

I pronounce this name eh-LYE-juh, not eh-LYE-zha. The latter sounds too much like Eliza.
-- Elly747  2/18/2007
Ee-LIE-zha is the original Hebrew pronunciation. Ee-LIE-juh is an Anglicized pronunciation and does make the name sound more masculine. You aren't "required" to pronounce it the Hebrew way. I also don't think it sounds outdated or old fashioned. Actually, it sounds like a modern name to me.

Why contribute false information?! What you had written is inverted. The original Hebrew pronunciation is Ee-LIE-juh and Ee-LIE-zha is the Anglicized one.

I love the name Elijah! I don't really like the name Eli, but it's okay.
-- melinda1  3/28/2007
I LOVE this name! To me, it sounds very masculine, and strong, as well as caring and considerate. And Elijah Wood makes it all the better.

I don't really like the name Elijah, although according to my poll a lot of people do.

My nephew's name is Elijah. I also have two good childhood friends who named their firstborn sons this. I think the name is fantastic, wholesome and strong. I also like the nickname Eli.
-- goreab  6/26/2007
I love the sound of this name. This is the middle name of my husband Jacob Elijah. I think it sounds quite nice. I will possibly use this as a middle name for a future son.

When I hear this name I think of the loud mouthed, ugly hobbit Elijah Wood. He messed up the name royaly.

This name along with Isaiah, are my favorite names for boys. I love the meaning of this name as well as how it looks.

Pronounced "E-li:yah".
-- Karcoolka  2/11/2008
I have never like the sound of this name. It just doesn't sound pleasant. Plus, it makes me think of Elijah Wood, and I do NOT like that guy. I won't get into that rant, but it's not because of his roles, as I've never watched a movie with him in it.
-- slight night shiver  5/22/2008
Pronunciation ee-lie-ran.

Elijah Patricius Hewson. What a name! Poor kid. He's Bono's son!
-- cheeseface  6/17/2008
I personally really like the name Elijah, I like the meaning of the name. Elijah is a strong and powerful name, Elijah also means the Lord is my God.
-- Jbutts  8/29/2008
This name is so nauseatingly trendy. I have a hard time taking an adult Elijah seriously because of its rabid overuse. The meaning may be nice, but face it, a lot of people are in love with it.
-- bananarama  8/5/2009
This name doesn't remind me of Elijah Wood at all. Then again, I have no idea who he is.

Anyways, Elijah is a really strong, sexy name. Love it.

Pronounced eh-lee-yah.

I love this name, but it's became too common.
-- Chrila96  11/20/2010
I was beyond surprised to see how popular this name has gotten.
-- Anonymous User  1/28/2013
I like this name, but I would like it a lot more if it wasn't so common.
-- EkiAku  6/7/2013
A non-traditional interpretation of this name (which we use) is "raised up by YAHWEH."

We get that meaning by replacing the version of "Eli"

With the version of "Eli."

Absolutely wonderful name. How it only has a 63% approval rating is beyond me!
