Elie: One of THE most common names in the Lebanese gay world.

True, it’s one of the most common names in the whole country to begin with, but I’m also finding that it’s the most popular FAKE gay name in Lebanon.

So if your name is… I donno… Hussein, your Manjam nickname will be “Elie”, “Elieeee”, or “Elie123”. Or if your real name is George, you’ll introduce yourself as Elie during the online chat.

I know that fake names will always be the rage over here cause people don’t want to be easily outed, but I can’t handle another Elie on my mobile. I already have 8 gay Elies on my cellphone. And I’ve already dated ENOUGH Elies. Time to come up with a new fake gay name, people!


To parents: stop naming your newborns Elies. Really, it’s enough. There ARE other names.

To all real Elies out there: Stay strong.

To all fake Elies: Get a new name. How about Nizar? There’s not enough gay Nizars in the country, and NONE on my cellphone!

PS: I just checked Manjam while writing this post and I have a message in my inbox. From an “Elie”.

    Most of the Lebanese guys here are using Elie or Mike as fake names and I met a lot of them

    Will most of them are not looking for a serious things , look at your manjam pic most of the guys are looking for sex why would they use a real name.

    One more thing using a fake name is okay but using a fake picture is not . Btw I saw someone at a gay apps on iPhone who is using some of my pics and he is acting like its there own pix , so If I was an Elie I’ll b more than okay to let the ppl use my name 😉

    They use Elie because Elie is the gayest male name in existence.
