Ilija is a masculine name. A variant of the Hebrew name Elijah, it is an ideal choice for parents and caregivers who are hoping to raise baby in faith. In the Hebrew Bible, Elijah is a prophet and miracle worker, which can represent how much of a blessing baby is in your life. Ilija comes from the Hebrew êlı̂yâh or the Ancient Greek Hēlías, which means “my God is the lord,” keeping baby connected to faith as they make their journey through life.
