Elian is a gender-neutral name with a variety of origins and meanings. This name serves as a Dutch variant of the Hebrew name Elijah, meaning "The Lord is my God," and Eliam, meaning "God is family." Both of these names have biblical roots and can be a great choice if you plan on sharing your faith with a baby. The figure Elijah, in particular, was known as a prophet and miracle worker in the Hebrew Bible, known for commanding fire from heaven. However, if you're looking for more secular ties, Elian also has Arabic roots, meaning "high," "supreme," or "exalted." It also acts as a Scandinavian variant of Helen, meaning "light." A name like this will enable baby to command a room with their bright spirit.
