Elias in Smiths Bible Dictionary the Greek form of Elijah.

Elias in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE e-li'-as.

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)...
