"My name is Elias. I don't knock on how people pronounce it because it varies where in the world you're from. (eh-LEE-us, ah-LIE-us, EL-e-us, etc, etc) I learned to love my name and it's uniqueness. I was named after my grandfather. He was from Mexico. A very kind and hardworking man. FYI. Walt Disney's middle name was...you guessed it, Elias. So we're in good company. (Walt's and my grandfather's)" Feb. 4, 2009:
"We are planning to use this name for our first born son... he will be Elias Joseph. This is a family name of mine.. a surname. My great-great-grandfather was Joseph Alejandro Elias.. so the baby will be named after him." Sep. 18, 2008:
"I really like the name Elijah and I think this is a unique form of it." Jan. 31, 2008:
"My name is "Eliasz" but you can say its the same, my parents pronounced it as "E-Leeh-azh" when I was a kid and told me it was a Polish/Czech name orginally being hebrew from the hebrew name "Eliyahu"(Elijah), meaning "The Lord is my God." Elias and Eliasz are variants of that name depending on your nationality. I also have a Russian background and so they use "Ilya" or "Ilja" over there. Residing in the US, people tend to pronounce my name as "E-Lie-Us."" Aug. 28, 2006:
"This is my sons name. Almost everyone who reads his name cannot pronounce it correctly. It is not a common name and that is one of the main reasons my husband and I love it so much. We do not know anyone else with this name." May. 28, 2005:

"My son's name is Elias. We love hearing people from different countries say his name. You wouldn't think such a short name could have so many different pronounciations. It's a great name and I love that it's not used very often,but the few Eliases I've ever met, have all been very nice people." Jan. 10, 2006:
