NPR Sunday Puzzle (Oct 30) - Eli, before and after

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Oct 30) - Eli before and after
Q: Take the name Eli and add three letters in front of it. Add the same three letters in reverse order after it to complete a familiar two-word phrase in nine letters. What is it?
Hint: The answer is something this puzzle has.
This one doesn't take much work to figure out. I found the hint wasn't that useful for finding the answer, but did serve as a confirmation, once I had found the answer. As always, I can't reveal my answer until after the deadline.
Edit: Your time is up!
TIM + ELI + MIT --> Time Limit

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
