Eias, Elas, & Elias

It is pretty interesting how so many girls' names from different cultures follow similar phonetic tendencies. I suppose boys' names must as well, but girls' names really seem to!
I've already done Ias, Inas, & ItasAias, Anas, & Aras, and Iras & Yras, Ilas & Ylas; this time it'll be Eias, Elas, and Elias. :)
