Elias is softer and more muted than many fire-and-brimstone biblical names. There’s no thunder because Elias is one letter away from Elian and two letters away from the gentlemanly Ellis. Elias uses the nickname Eli, just as Elijah does. After 115 years, Elias has made it to the top 100 boys' names, but make no mistake: He’s on his way up.
