I am due 4-24-08 and will name my son Kendall Elijah - I knew I wanted his middle name to be Biblical and was torn between Emmanuel and Elijah but in the end everyone I knew loved the name Elijah. It also means the Lord is my God and my son will be blessed to have that name...

It's an excellent name and Eli is a great nickname for Elijah. I'm going to use it as a name for a character in the book I'm writing and probably for my future kid. It's the name of one of my favorite actors and I like that it has Biblical origins.
great name indeed

I am planning on probably using Elijah in the future for my little boy's middle name. It flows so pretty with other names and I would like to give my little boy a Biblical middle name.
