Elias (/ɨˈlaɪ.əs/) is the Latin transliteration of the Greek name Ἠλίας, which in turn is the Hellenized form of the Hebrew: אליהו, Eliyahu, meaning "Yahweh is my God". Another form of Eliyahu in English is Elijah.

The name belonged most notably to Elijah ( /ɨˈlaɪdʒə/), the Hebrew prophet. The Quran refers to this prophet in Arabic as Ilias(إلياس). The King James Version of the Bible also uses "Elias" in the New Testament as the English translation of the Greek name for this prophet.
