Elias, if you pronounce it Ee-lye-us. If you pronounce it Eh-lee-us, I prefer Elijah. Pronounced Ee-lye-us is my favorite because it is a little less common than Elijah. But I really like both names!

I think I like the sound of Elijah more but I would consider Elias before Elijah since it is less common.

I love Elias. It is not as common as Elijah, and I like the way it sounds.

ditto. to be honest though i'm not a fan of either name for a boy because they sound sort of feminine to me.

I love Elias. I just don't like names that end in the -a sound on boys.

I prefer Elias because it goes better with your DD's name as far as style and I just like the sound of it better than Elijah.

Elias, because it just seems classic. That, and Elijah is very trendy now, at least in my eyes.
