Elias! It would be shortened to Eli. His big brother is called Ezra. What do you think of the name and also does it go well with his brothers name?

It's fine. I don't love it, but there's nothing wrong with it. I like Eli.

I think Ezra and Elias are a bit matchy.

Not my style of name, but I do think they go well together.

I like it, but I'm not sure about Ezra and Elias together...

I think they're too similar.

Ankleswingers Sun 12-Mar-17 16:53:54

I know a little Elias.

Gorgeous little chap.

I think that Ezra and Elias are way too similar though.

Abetes Sun 12-Mar-17 16:54:40

I think they are too similar too.

Fine and not too similar.

Not my style of name, but, that aside, I think it isn't ideal to have same initial as a sibling.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 12-Mar-17 17:42:16

Too similar, I think.

Sophronia Sun 12-Mar-17 17:47:19

Fine and not too similar.

ToastVacuum Sun 12-Mar-17 17:53:59

Very nice and not too similar, they go well together.

Jooni Sun 12-Mar-17 18:44:33

I like it, and it goes beautifully with Ezra if you don't mind matching initials.

Really nice and they go together well.

The name is fine, mail in their teenage years will be a pain in the neck though given that most of it will come to Mr E Sleepless.

CakeRattleandRoll Mon 13-Mar-17 05:56:44

I like it and I think it is fine with Ezra.

I really like Elias. Know a lovely 5 year old one. However I agree that it's not great with Ezra and I dislike matching sibling initials too.

sleeplessinsurrey247 Mon 13-Mar-17 06:21:41

Thanks for all your comments! I think because my siblings and I all have the same initials I didn't see it as a problem.

People really don't get that much mail mail these days do they? When our babies are older teenagers it'll be even less, I'm sure. I don't think mail is a cause for concern.

There's nothing wrong with it, but I don't like it. I know a gorgeous little Elias though so I could very well change my mind over time!

I prefer Ellis, but I've seen people slate that on here. I also love Elijah, which I think is much nicer if you want to shorten to Eli.

Elias is nice but El or Eli sound feminine imo
