• Spanish (Elías); Greek, Catalan, Portuguese, English, Welsh, German, Dutch, and Jewish; Hungarian (Éliás); Czech (Eliá ); Slovak (Eliá and Elia ): from a personal name, taken from the New Testament Greek form of Hebrew Eliyahu 'Jehovah is God' (Anglicized as Elijah in the Old Testament of the King James Bible). This name was borne by a Biblical prophet, but its popularity among Christians in the Middle Ages was largely a result of its adoption by various early saints, including a 7th-century bishop of Syracuse and a 9th-century Spanish martyr. In Britain many of the large number of records of this name in the 17th century are probably hypercorrected forms of Ellis [DAFN, vol. 1, p 521].
