Comments and insights on the name Ilana: | Edit

Ilan in hebrew is a male-gender term for tree... An Israeli friend of ours though explained that it is not literally 'tree' but more the 'idea' of a tree or a poetic concept. Which is so pretty...

Ilana is a beautiful name for a baby born on any day of the year but traditionally (by the Jewish culture) it is given to a girl born on February 19th, the anniversary of the trees.
