Eli?

What do you think of the name Eli?

I really like it, but worry it seems a lot like a nickname. Do you think it's okay on its own, or would a longer name (like Elijah, which I don't like much) be better?

It sounds like a nickname to me. Only because I know someone named Elias and he goes by Eli. But I like the name.

I prefer Elias or Elliot over Elijah, but I'm hearing it a lot lately so I wouldn't personally use it.

My ex has a son named Elijah Lee. I like the longer version better than just eli, maybe as a nickname.

Elias is cute! I've never heard it before. Elliot was always my fallback "long form" name.

I like Elijah but it seems very Biblical to me and kind of turns me off it for us.

Eli is a name of its own though, so I don't see it as a nickname.
