Opinion on the name Elijah?

loobybear Mon 18-Dec-17 22:07:04

Lovely name but quite hipster where I am (I know other places it tends to be seen as quite a religious name).

Love it by couldn't persuade DH.

DramaAlpaca Mon 18-Dec-17 22:19:59

I don't like it, it's too religious for me.

Love it.

I think Elijah Wood.

Love it!

Either very religious or very hipster - I know a couple of Elijahs though & they are both sweet boys! Might be the kind of name where there are three in every class (but my opinion might be influenced by knowing two!)

Love it! But I also like Elias and Eli... (I actually like most names that start with El, for some reason)

I find the sound a little feminine, probably because it ends in a. Also find the short form El or Elly rather girly.

How about Elliott?

I have a (very religious) friend with a little Elijah. Why not? It's cute on him.

I've always loved Elijah but couldn't use it due to our surname sad

Beautiful name smile

I really love it. I have an irrational hate for Eli though, it sounds so screechy and shrill (to my ear anyway) I know an Elijah who is never shortened, 2 'just' Eli's, and Elijah who is always Eli.

Love It but its getting very popular. We've had 4 start nursery this term.

I love it - but then I'm biased as I have one smile
