- Personal experiences with the name Eliel: | Edit
Thats my baby boys middle name! I love this name so much it has a beautiful meaning. I know its hard for some people to pronounce it right but as long my son gets his name down thats all that matters.
My first name is Eliel, growing up with it was not very fun. Majority of the people could not pronounce it; they would butcher the hell out of it. If they couldn't pronounce it, they would just call me Elliot or Ely or something similar like Ariel. As an adult I appreciate my name and the meaning and it is a GREAT conversation starter with people you do not know when they ask for your name. Till this day I have not met anyone in person with the same name. The only issue I experience frequently is at work. I send e-Mails and I always, 8/10 times get a response with MS., they assume ELIEL is a girls name. Other than that I love my name.
