Of Hebrew origin, the first name Elijah (or Elias) means "the Lord is my God." It’s an act of faith in a single word. The ancient name "Eliyahu" was formed from the two Hebrew words "El" and "Yah,” both meaning God. This name refers to the prophet Elijah from the Book of Kings, known for his great wisdom and his miracles.
