Meaning of Ilan

Ilan is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means to announce something, to make something public. It also means a person who is industrious and able to create and build things. It is derived from the Ain-L-N root which is used in many places in the Quran.

those who are steadfast in seeking the favour of their Lord, and pray regularly and spend secretly and openly out of what We have provided them with, and ward off evil with good. Theirs shall be the final abode. (Quran 13:22)

Then I [called them to faith] publicly and in private. (Quran 71:9)
