Elias in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
Elias in Wikipedia
is the Latin transliteration of the Greek name Ἠλίας,
pronounced [eˈli.as] or [ˈeli.as] in most European languages,
and English pronunciation: /ɨˈlaɪ.əs/ in English. Elias is
also a common name in Lebanon and the Levant. Elias is also
Élie in French.
It is the hellenized form of Elijah, the name of an important
prophet in the Hebrew Bible. Some English translations of the
New Testament, including the King James Version, use this form
of the name. (In the King James Version, Elias appears only in
the Apocrypha and New Testament.) Newer translations usually
translate it as Elijah. Elias is linguistically derived from
Elijah because the Hebrew suffix -yahu, rendered -iah or -jah
in English is consistently replaced with -ias in Greek, as
seen in other names such as Isaiah/Esaias and
Jeremiah/Jeremias. In the Levantine tradition, the name is
actually Eliyya (eh-lee-YUH) as mentioned in Arabic Old
Testaments. The Greeks and Romans added an "s" at the end of
most, if not all, semitic names (e.g. Luca became Lucas)...
