The meaning of Aedias in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
a-e-di'-as (Aedeias). Mentioned in 1 Esdras 9:27, being one of those who agreed to divorce their alien wives. This name is supposed to be a corruption of the Greek Helia, there being no Hebrew equivalent for it, and in Ezra 10:26, the name occurs in the correct form as Elijah ('eliyah = "God is Yahweh").
