Lorilei is a girl’s name of German origin. It means “lure,” or “to lure,” “lurking rock,” or “luring cliff.” The name comes from a tall rock on the Rhine River named Lorelei. This rock is 433 feet high and stands proudly on the right bank of the River Rhine. Lorilei is often linked to a mythological siren or mermaid who is said to dwell on the rock, luring sailors to their doom with her enchanting song. Inspired by the myth, alternate spellings of this name have been featured in works like Die Loreley by Heinrich Heine. Every challenge in life will be a stepping stone for your little Lorilei, who is sure to scale even the highest cliffs like a fearless explorer.
