Meaning & History
As a Svan name, this name is strictly masculine. It comes from the name of the Svan sun god Lile, whose name is thought to be etymologically related to that of the Sumerian god Enlil.As a Georgian name, Lile is unisex, but predominantly feminine. Male bearers are quite rare these days. For men, it might perhaps be a diminutive of names like Ilarion and Ilia, whilst for women, it is most likely a variant of Lili and/or a short form of Liliana.A known bearer of this name was the Georgian (male) conductor Lile Kiladze (1928-1978).
