  • I really like the name Elijah, however it's it's VERY common. Ranked #21 for boys in 2009... with 12,652 sharing the name. The name Elias is a nice alternative I think... ranked 158 with only 2,459 boys with that name.

  • I like it alot and no it is not common where I am, so I guess it would depend on where you live.

  • I don't think so. I only know one person named Elijah. It's a good name even if it is popular now.

  • Not to me because I don't know anyone named Elijah. The only person I've ever heard of named Elijah is Elijah Wood, the actor.
