That is our short list. I can't say I've found a name I love, apart from Jacob, but Jacob is way way way too popular for me to consider now sad

Any opinions on the names? Thinking of Elijah. Have an Ethan already.

We have a Dexter Miles named before the TV series started! Brilliant name and it really suits him.

We have an Elijah and it never gets shortened to Eli so I wouldn't be concerned about it. He's also the only one we know.

I always liked Elias too

Do people pronounce Elijah as Ee-li-jar, or El-i-ja?!

I pronounce it El-i-ja, rightly or wrongly I don't know.

I have a 9 year old Elijah. We pronounce with a soft 'j' not a hard 'j' (as in jam).
He does get called ELi mostly though!
I would avoid 2 'E' names, personally. I like Jonah and Luca with Ethan.
