Elliot - a personal preference because I have a really good friend of that name.

Elias! I love this name and wish I had thought of it for DS.

I know 3 baby Elliots born in November this year, and I know a lot of Elijahs too so I think they are more popular at the moment.

I love the name Elias!

I wanted my youngest to be called Elliott - until his father mentioned he would be called "Elliott the Idiot". That totally put me off the name, even though there was no substance to it. We called him a more traditional name instead. -I still wish we had named him Elliott and his father wasn't such an idealistic pratt! -

Really like Elias.

Are you wanting to shorten it to Eli?
If so, I would use Elijah or Elias, not Elliot. Don't know why, but I just always find it doesn't quite make phonic sense when people shorten Elliot to Eli.

I have an Elijah who is 6 and we've yet to meet another so I don't think it's that common ....... but I don't often wish I'd used Elias instead.

As an aside, my DS'a name does not get shortened to Eli - his friends all shorten it to Lija or Lijie so something to consider if that will irritate you. Elias only really lends itself to Eli

I've only ever known one Elijah, a gorgeous, funny, full of beans, independant thinking six year old. Wonders is I know shylo! Its a lovely name. So is Elias and Elliot.

As someone whose name is always spelt wrong, life bugbare, can Elliot be spelt Eliot too.

Love Elijah and I've never met anyone with that name (and I've just added it to my own baby name list grin )
