I'm definitely looking for the nn: Eli here.....just trying to figure out which longer name I like better. The first two syllables of these names is kind of feminine sounding to me - Elle-EE - and I'm thinking the TT ending has a little more masculine sound to it than the soft US at the end of Elias. I want the more masculine sound, for sure.

WDYT?

I think of Eli as such a masculine NN (and a stand alone name), that I wouldn't worry too much about which of the longer names sounded the most masculine... I would pick the one that resonates the most with you! To see some responses to the personality traits each name conveys, you can try http://www.babynamewizard.com/namepedia

I pronounce Elliott -- ELLE lee itt and Elias -- eh LYE us

For me, Elias seems the better fit for the nn Eli and I consider it to be more masculine of the two. (There was a female Elliott on the show Scrubs, didn't watch it but I saw it posted on some other bn boards back when it first aired.)

Okay, wow, Cortney. I didn't realize there could be more than one pronunciation for Elias, so I didn't look it up before making this post.

The only Elias I've known pronounced it: Elle-EE-us

But, I looked it up and found these two pronunciations: ee-LEE-as AND eh-LYE-uss
Elias | Name Meaning & Origin | Boy Name Elias | Baby Names World

I don't know about using a name with 2-3 different ways to pronounce it.
