This name is actually quite pretty for a girl, maybe an alternative to Abigail with the nickname Abby.

This is also a title of a Sheryl Crow song: "Abilene", from her 2002 album C'Mon, C'Mon.

I first heard this name from the book: "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" by Kate Dicamillo. I loved her character and the sweetness about her, I immediately fell in love with this name.

This name does not mean hazelnut, but the name Aveline is a French word for it.

Very sweet name, but I pronounce it ay-bill-leen. That's the only way I've ever heard it pronounced.

Abilene Tulane from The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.

I love this name in contrast to lengthy Evangeline. I remember reading The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is 2nd grade and instantly loving it.

I love the Sheryl crow song Abilene (Abbey-leen) and I have always remembered this name because of it. I like that it's unusual, yet has a well known nickname Abbie, Abi, and Lena and I guess also Billie if you pronounce it Ah-bill-een. I like that it's biblical, though if it really means grass, I'm not sure that is a good thing, as that to me just sounds like a type of marijuana. And coincidence, Sheryl crow lives in California! I would not be at all surprised if there actually is a genus of cannabis called Abilene. But aside from all that, it is a lovely name.
