The Name Eilidh
Eilidh is popular Scottish or Gaelic name that is mostly used for a girl. This name is often used by those who are looking for a name that is proper and unique. This name is a form of the name Ellie (Oxford Press) and it’s starting to get some attention in Gaelic speaking countries. Eilidh is more commonly used these days as an Anglicised version of the name Helen and means ‘radiant’ (Scottish Baby Names) or the ‘sun’ (10,00 baby names).
The name Eilidh meaning wicker, reed or basket, however this female name is not currently popular in the United States. In fact, it didn’t even make the top 1,000 list of baby names. While it never made the charts in the US, it does in Scotland being the 25th most popular baby girl’s name. While this Scottish/Gaelic name appears to be unique, only about 175 babies’ girls get given this name each year in Scotland. It is definitely one to consider for those who are looking for the beautifully exceptional name for their girl.
