Illan is a name usually given to boys. It is quite prevalent in Arabic and Islamic cultures, and has Hebrew origins as well. In Hebrew, the meaning of Illan is 'oak tree' or simply 'tree', and it is a variation of the more common Ilan. In Latin and Arabic, Illan means 'youth', making it a fitting name for young boys. The names Elon and Alon are also variants of Ilan and Illan, all of which have the same roots and meaning. In few cultures, Illan is also used as a surname. However, the name Illan is seen as quite old-fashioend and is not used as much nowadays. People prefer to name their children more modern variations of the name, like Elon. The name Illan is quite popular in New Zealand, and can also be found in Australia, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
