Eli

There will be a lot of Elis in the next few decades—the name whiich has been around forever (first as a short form of Elijah, then a proper name on it’s own), has steadily risen in the name charts to hit the apex of its popularity. Biblically, Eli was an Old Testament figure who was a high priest of Israel and instructed the young Samuel. In modern times, Eli Manning is a likeable Super Bowl-winning quarterback which may account for the name’s recent trendiness.
