We're currently torn between these two names for our son who is due in two weeks. One is quite popular and other a little different. Any views on these names which may help us decide? The clock is ticking!

Thanks for your votes! It looks like Elias is in the lead at the moment. It's good to know that other people like it too. fsmile

Like Charlie but only as a nickname for Charles (yes I know it can be used as a full name, just personally don't like it that way).

I have an almost 6 year old Charlie and There's only 2 Charlie's in his whole school... I love it obviously but it's really popular for baby boys at the moment... My friend has an 18 month old Charlie and knows of another 3. It depends if that bothers you. Not keen on Elias personally. It really is wildly different from Charlie.

Really like both. Just see what he looks like when he's born

Oh dear, i have a friend who's called Elias and his nickname is Siph.

Its short for Siph-Elias : Syphellis

Still, boys will be boys

Sorry, I really don't like Charlie - it's in the same pile as Alfie and Archie for me.

Elias much nicer.

I just can't imagine standing in the park shouting 'Elias!' Would sound too poncey for me I'm afraid!

I've got a ten year old Charlie (Charles on birth certificate), only one in the school surprisingly, and I love it BUT also love Elias and think may be better as definitely less widely used (no children called Elias at C school!)

Thanks everyone for the comments. We still like both but are leaning more towards Elias at the moment. Would probably shorten his name to Eli which I quite like too.
