We adopted a little 2 yr old boy and named him Eli. It is a nice name with a nice meaning and you don't hear it all the time. We get lots and lots of compliments on his name!

My name is Eli and i just recently visited Israel where my name is originally from. I was looked upon awkwardly for being Latino and baring this name. The root of this name even before My God is "God Is Exalted". I have now passed this name down to my first born and teach to do the same in his future generation.

Lover to an Eli
written by Hannah , July 10, 2008
I am madly in love with a man named Eli. It really suits him as a person all around. He is a very passionate and genuine person. I believe everyone's name fits them, so if you want a boy that's going to grow up to be a softy with a humungous heart, then name him Eli.
our Eli

my son-in-law loved the name Eli before he ever met our daughter. Eli Xavier was born last July and I really love the name. I think it is a strong name and not run of the mill where every third boy in the class will have the same name.
