I think by this stage, we've all heard the name Lillith which is particularly impossible not to love. The overly feminine sound of this name makes it an incredibly beautiful choice for your baby girl if you're looking for something with a little more meat on it compared to

Lily or Lillian. But Lillith has quite a discerning meaning and history that veers on the dark side. The name has deep associations with servitude, chaos, retaliation and downright evil. All of which, certainly gives the name a bit of punch and weight!

Lillith comes from the word lilitu which means "of the night". A somewhat perfect translation when you look at her history. Lillith was Adam's first wife who was thrown out of Eden and replaced by Eve simply because she would not submit to him. To add to the darkness of her incredible story, the offspring of Adam and Lillith were the evil spirits of the world.
