The name Eden is taken from the Hebrew language and the meaning of Eden is taken from the Garden of Eden. The Garden of Eden is a heavenly location written about in the Holy Bible, which was a utopia and a paradise and was the place where God first placed the first man and woman - Adam and Eve. However, when they disobeyed his rules and ate the forbidden fruit (after being tempted by the wicked serpent) God threw them out of paradise and forced them to live on Earth. Eden is known for being the garden where the Tree of Knowledge was located. There were plentiful piles of food, trees and plants were always in blossom and all the animals got along, despite their different places on the food chain. It is also known for being a place where there was no diseases or sickness and no wrongdoing or coldbloodedness. According to the Book of Ezekiel, the Garden of Eden was discovered in the area we now know as Lebanon. The name Eden can also be a variant of the names Edith and Aidan. One famous figure with the name is Broadway star Eden Espinosa, who is known for her performances in 'Wicked' and 'Rent'.

Eli is a name that can be found in the Hebrew bible. There are two interpretations of the meaning of Eli. The meaning of Eli can be ‘ascent’, ‘uplift’, ‘high’ from the word ‘aly’. The name can also be considered as a shorter version of names such as Elijah, Eliezer and Elisha. Thus, the name can also mean ‘my Lord’. This comes from ‘el’ referring to the Syro-Palestinian name for the God of Israelites and ‘-i’, signifying to ‘me’, ‘mine’. The 'Book of Samuel' brings to us Eli, who was the high priest of Shiloh and the last judge of Israel before Samuel. Hannah meets Eli at Shiloh to pray for a child. Priest Eli accuses her of being drunk but when Hannah proves her innocence, Eli blesses her to bear children. Hannah’s son, Prophet Samuel, was raised by Priest Eli. Eli has also been used as a nickname for modern names such as Elizabeth and Elina.

Eliana is a name with Latin roots, as it is the Latinized version of the Hebrew name Eliyanah. The meaning of Eliana comes from the Hebrew words ‘el', meaning ‘God’ and ‘ana’, meaning ‘answered’ or ‘responded’. Thus, Eliana means ‘the God/Lord Almighty has answered me’. This name is particularly popular in Portugese and Spanish speaking nations. Eliana has also been created by merging the names Elle and Anna together. The name also finds its roots in the Latin name Aeliana, which is taken from Aelius, which was a Roman family name. Aelius finds its meaning from the word ‘helios’, which is the Greek word for ‘the sun’, ‘sunshine’, ‘bright’ and ‘sunlight’. Thus, Eliana can also mean ‘descendant of the sun’.
