Neila is a beautiful feminine name of Hebrew origin. Meaning “closing” or “locking,” this distinctive choice references an important part of Jewish culture. Neila—which is sometimes spelled Ne’ila or Neilah—is the name of the final, concluding prayer service on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish religion. During this time, the final prayers of repentance are spoken, the shofar is blown, and songs are sung to mark the ending of this important holiday and the fast. Giving baby a name like Neila will undoubtedly keep them connected to their heritage and faith, no matter what.
