In Welsh Lael means "little flower of God". And in Arabic it means "Night". The name comes from Numbers 3:24 in the Old Testament, where Lael was the father of Eliasaph; the man in charge of the Gershonite tribe who took care of the fabrics of the Tent of Meeting (AKA the Tabernacle).

Lael Litke is an LDS author that wrote a lot of books for kids, like "Blue Skye" and "Getting Rid of Rhoda" etc. She is my grandmother's cousin and is very well known -- here in Utah, anyways.

My bible (which has all pronunciations) says it's LAY-el.

In Hebrew it's pronounced Lah-ehl as another said. Bibles have the pronunciation of names, but they are the English pronunciation. Like Jesus, his "real" name or the original Hebrew is Yeshua.

I don't like Lael as a name. It seems too incomplete.

I really like this name for a girl but I think the pronunciation would be confusing (although I actually like the name pronounced both Lay-EL and Lale).

A girl in my high school had this name and she pronounced it "Lale".
