Eibhlin, also spelled Eibhlín, is a girl’s name of Irish origin. It’s an Irish form of Evelyn, which derives from the Norman name Aveline of uncertain meaning. It may derive from the Latin word avis, meaning “bird,” though its meaning in modern French is “hazelnut.” Eibhlin may also be an Irish translation of the Greek name Helen, meaning “torch” or “shining light.” It has been anglicized as Eileen and Aileen. Whichever meaning you prefer, this classic Irish name is a lovely choice if you want to pay tribute to your roots in the Emerald Isle.
