Elijah

the Lord is my God
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 17
Among Biblical names, Elijah strikes a balance between the vowel-packed endings of old-school names like Jeremiah and Josiah with more common names like David and Daniel. The name is experiencing a surge of popularity. In the Bible, Elijah was one of the great prophets who performed miracles and spoke out against false prophets and idols. His last miracle was ascending to heaven in a whirlwind, riding in a chariot. We predict Elijah will keep rising in the rankings. Heather Morris had her first son Elijah in 2013.
