Elijah -- the name of the Old Testament prophet who went to heaven in a chariot of fire -- has become a fashionable biblical choice. More than 13,000 parents chose Elijah last year, bringing it inside the Top 20 for the first time ever --a possible challenge to Jacob for Number 1 in the future.
Elijah figures in the Jewish, Christian and Muslim religions. There are numerous songs containing the name, and Elijah also figures in many books--including Charles Dickens's Martin Chuzzlewit-- and in films.
