Embrace the drama of life with this Babylonian girl's name. Lilith, meaning "belonging to the night," comes from the Akkadian word lilîtu, the feminine form of a word meaning "demon" or "spirit." In Mesopotamian and Jewish mythology, Lilith was the first wife of Adam who was ultimately banished from the Garden of Eden for her disobediance. The name has since appeared in all manner of books, films, TV shows, and videogames, from Supernatural to The Mortal Instruments, and is synonymous with characters who will go above and beyond to achieve their own goals—although, more often than not, she’s not on the heroes' side. With this name, you can give baby a powerful figure to look up to, someone who doesn't let anything hold her back.
