I'm not going into a big discussion on this. I'm really happy with the name and I dont in any way plan on spelling it Elijah. So thanks for the opinions :)

Why ask for opinions if you are happy with the name?
Also, a PP said that not only where she works discriminates based on names, but that it is very common...

Well for Alistair it at least makes sense! Alijah is all over the place IMO. She wants it pronounced Uh-lijah, so wouldn't it make Ali pronounced Uhh-lee? Weirrrrd. lol
