Ilene is a girl’s name of Irish origin and a fashion-forward revamp of Eileen. Inspired by the Irish names Eibhlin and Aibhlin, it takes on the meanings of “strength,” “little bird,” or “desired.” This name may also translate to “pleasantness” or “hazelnut” if you consider its ties to Éibhleann and Aveline. As a derivative of the Greek name Helen, meaning “torch” or “light,” Ilene is bound to give baby that bright spark. But that’s just the icing on top of all its wonderfully wide-ranging etymologies!
