Orel is a gender-neutral name. In Hebrew, the name means “light of God,” making it an ideal pick for a Hanukka baby. However, in very many Slavic languages, Orel means “eagle” and was typically used as a nickname for a courageous person or to refer to a topography or house marked by the sign of an eagle. Either way, choosing this name for your little one will help spread their wings, encouraging them to reach for the heavens!
