Meaning:Of Eilean Bàn, of White Isle
Eilean is a girl’s name of Gaelic origin, meaning “of Eilean Bán” or “of White Isle,” that comes steeped in Scottish history. Derived from Eilean Bán, the name of a six-acre island located between Kyle of Lochalsh and the Isle of Skye, Eilean resounds in a sweet ode to a sea-surrounded land that has served Scotland’s civilizations for centuries. Used as a staging post for villagers wishing to cross open waters, as well as a stepping stone for the Skye Bridge, which was built in 1995, Eilean Bán has been in the country’s favor ever since its bold discovery. And naming baby after it is a beautiful way to behold all its blessing.
