Meaning

With a bright, modern ring to it, you may doubt that this is a name with a long, long tradition. It does in fact go right back to ancient times. Thanks to a few early saints, Elias was a hugely popular figure in medieval tales and the name spread all over old Europe, from Norway to Greece and Finland to Portugal. Now less common, Elias is just as simple, youthful and natural a name as ever.
