So we've been all set on naming this baby Elijah, and Eli for short.. everyone knows the name and we use it all the time.
Then tonight I see a preview for a movie coming out next month called "book of Eli", and I don't know- I guess I worry it's going to change the image of the name we chose, and now everyone will see this new association with the name, or think he was named after the movie.
The whole "end-of-the-world" movie concept has always bugged me- I hate those kinds of movies, and from what I've found online, the main character Eli, though he is the protagonist, he does kill his parents, and it has lots of religious undertones which is not dh's cup of tea. but don't get me wrong, I do like Denzel Washington.
I dunno-- it seems too "bad ass" of an association to the name Eli than I wanted for my little boy. I was just picturing a cute, quirky little brother kinda Eli.
Who knows- maybe no one will notice the movie, but what if it's like a big hit or something, and then there are violent action figure toys named Eli..
really worried maybe my name will be tarnished
I almost feel like looking for a new name, but I feel it's too late.
