    How do you pronounce Elias?

    Tossing around an old favorite.. I’m curious to see how people would pronounce it. Other impressions and opinions also always welcome!

    I'd pronounce it as uh-LIE-us (like the above) but I've never known anyone with the name so I could be wrong. I'm from the UK, if that makes a difference.
