Origin:Hebrew
Meaning:The Lord is my God
Elija is a boy’s name of Hebrew origin and a choice to be cherished for your faithful one. Like the eminent Elijah, Elija is derived from the Hebrew name Eliyyahu, meaning “the Lord is my God,” and is a mighty way to pay homage to baby’s beliefs. While the biblical Elijah is most recognized for his prophetic powers, he was also known as a miracle worker, calling the rain to come down and giving breath to a boy about to breathe his last. And although Elija may be missing that all-famous “H,” there’s no doubt about the little hero that lies within.
