I really like Eli as a nn, prefer Elias or Elliot as the more formal name, but that said I think Elijah is very sweet and works very nicely in your sibset.

I prefer Eli as a nickname from Elias. BUT, I love the name Elijah. One of the best parts about naming your child Elijah is that people can choose if they want to use the nickname or not. Eli makes perfect sense, but Elijah is strong and simple enough to not need a nickname at all. You could call him Eli, but DH could stick to Elijah.

I love it! If our last name wasn't Manning then Eli (or Elijah) would be our boy name.
