Elias's cousin was the first one to come up with a viable nickname for him. Of course, we could have nicknamed him "E", because that would match his brother well, but we decided not to.
Josiah, Elias's cousin, was the one to have the honors: a day after Elias was born, Josiah asked his mom, "When are we going to go see baby Golias*, he's so sweet!"
Maybe Elias's nickname will get a nickname, and we'll call him "G"…
*sounds like "go-LYE-us"
