Meaning

Eilon is a Hebrew name that means “oak tree”. In the Torah, the oak tree is often associated with strength and longevity, reflecting the qualities that parents hope their children will possess. This name has become popular in Jewish culture as a way of promoting these qualities in children. It is a name that is often given to boys in the hope that they will grow up to be strong and resilient men. An interesting anecdote is that this name is sometimes spelled differently, with an “e” instead of an “i”, as it is believed that this spelling is more traditional.
