Many people look to the Bible for inspiration, but the world is already full of Johns and Noahs and Marys. If you’re looking for something fresh and new, try Ilai. This name, Hebrew in origin, is generally said to mean “exalted” or “superior.” Ilai saw its heyday, as it were, several years ago, but even then, it was far from common, and it has only dropped further and further down in the rankings since then. Pronounced ee-lie, chances are good you’re much more familiar with the common spelling Eli. But if you’re seeking a truly unique spelling, well, chances are good your family will never meet another Ilai for as long as you may live!
