Re: Nice Picture / Article

"As for baby Exton's middle name, Elias, perhaps it's a nod to New York Giants star quarterback, Eli Manning, who led his team to a Super Bowl win on Sunday. After all, dad Robert is a NYC native." OY VEY

LOL! I guess anything is possible, Sarah!
But we know that "Elias" was Robert's families original last name. When they first came to America, they changed it to Downey. Maybe to sound more American? Not sure if it was his grandparents or great-grandparents?

So I would bet that is where Elias comes from!

We're told that Robert's grandmother remarried a Downey, and that Robert's dad took his step-father's name when he joined the army.

And Eli Manning's name is Elisha.

Yes,
I have heard that too...That Robert's father took his stepfather surname(James Downey),to enlist himself in army.
Coz his father was born as Robert Elias...so i think RDJ gave his son Exton Both the surnames (Elias & Downey)

"Dad's Jewish and Irish, Mom's German and Scotch. I couldn't say I was anything. My last name isn't even Downey. My dad changed his name when he wanted to get into the Army and was underage. My real name is Robert Elias. I feel like I'm still looking for a home in some way."
