Does anyone know of a god, angel, or even goddess by the name of Elijah? (Besides the Christian angel) Or maybe do you know of a god, angel, or goddess with a variation from that/a name that sounds like Elijah (ee-lie-jah)? Any knowledge will be greatly appreciated.

There is of course the prophet Elijah who was taken up into heaven in a chariot of fire (or a whirlwind) rather than growing old and dying.. This is all covered in the Book of Kings in the Old Testament. The name Elijah means "My God is Yahweh"
You can find quiet a bit on Elijah at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elijah
There is no Goddess named Elijah as Elijah is a man's name. Nor do I know of any God or Goddess of a similar name.
