Please pick one and explain why - even if it's just 'the lesser of two evils' grin

While I definitely appreciate there are people who will dislike these names and will suggest others, these are the final 2 so please don't post if you have nothing to contribute!

Love Elias, it is easier to say than Isaiah.

Love both but probably prefer Elias as I once taught a really, really naughty boy called Isaiah and it reminds me of him!

Like them both, but I prefer Elias as Isaiah feels overtly religious. Good choices!

Isaiah is my fave

I like Isaiah but love Elias - it was the name of a favourite tutor at uni and Isaiah is a little bit too overtly religious for me.

Thanks so much for comments so far! Definitely get the 'overtly religious' thing - but both DP and I are atheists. The name would be to honor my grandmother's dad who she was very close to, and my grandmother and I are very tightly knit.

Elias we just like the sound of grin

Elias is better. Isaiah is just too much I think.

Elias is gorgeous.

Isaiah is a bit worthy imho.

I love Isaiah - met a smallish one in the summer who suited the name and was lovely.
