Go on, what do you think. We can't agree on any boys names but keep coming back to this. Eli for short I guess. Views?

I like it - lots smile

i love it and wanted it on our list but dh hated it for some reason, might have something to do with the annoying actor that was in lord of the rings.

yep = lovely

JeMeSouviens Mon 25-May-09 19:23:28

We have one, it's the only boys name we could think of that we loved.

BlameItOnTheBogey Mon 25-May-09 19:25:01

Ooh ok hooray! I don't know any others so it seems a bit unusual to me and I am a bit of a square you see. But I do love it.

BlameItOnTheBogey Mon 25-May-09 19:26:04

And yes, pronounced E - lie when shortened.

I love it - one of my best friends has an Elijah and it suits him down to the ground. Beautiful name.

I love it, my 6 year old is Elijah - we always call him Eli though (he gets very cross if we use the full name grin)

Thunderduck Mon 25-May-09 19:49:48

Love it. It's a great name.

ProfYaffle Mon 25-May-09 19:53:33

I love Elijah, that's what dd2 would have been called if she were a boy. Eli is a family name for us.

We like smile

BlameItOnTheBogey Tue 26-May-09 15:40:49

Wow! That's a universal 'like it'! OK, good well we may have a name then.

HellHathNoFury Tue 26-May-09 15:58:11

Love it. We ruled it out for some reason - I think DH decided it was too biblical.
But that aside, I love it.

Wasn't the kid in Sleepless in Seattle called Elijah?

PrammyMammy Tue 26-May-09 16:15:32

Love it. It was on our list for ds, who ended up Noah. Go for it.

Thefearlessfreak Tue 26-May-09 16:19:47
