[ 2 syll. (s)hi-loh, sh-il-oh ] The baby boy name Shiloh is also used as a girl name, with the latter form being somewhat more common. It is pronounced in English as -SHAY-Low †. Shiloh is largely used in the English and Hebrew languages, and it is derived from Hebrew origins. The first name is derived from the name of an ancient city, mentioned both as a place name and personal name in the Bible. As a place name, it was a holy assembly place for the Israelites mentioned in the Book of Judges, derived from the Hebrew 'shalev' (meaning safe, peaceful) and the Aramaic 'shele'. As a personal name, it appeared in the Book of Genesis, in reference to the coming Messiah; thus the meaning 'he who will be sent'.
Shilo (English and Hebrew variant spelling) is another form of Shiloh.
