Name In Spotlight: Shiloh

Shiloh is of Hebrew origin and means "his gift". Associated as a male name in the past, Shiloh has gained attention as a female name in recent years since it's the name of Angelina Jolie's daughter. However, for me this is one of those names that I could see gaining popularity on boys, if the right opportunity came - like a big star with that name, or a tv character. For some reason, "oh" ending names just scream masculine to me, and that applies to Juno too.

There is one male celebrity that has this name, Shiloh Fernandez.

Though he has yet to make a big splash in Hollywood, he has made innumerous appearances in popular shows such as CSI and Cold Case. He was actually one of the runner-ups to play "Edward" in Twilight - can you imagine the name Shiloh getting the attention Edward has been getting of late? A big shame really. For now, the name rests outside the top1000 for boys.

Nonetheless, I do think Shiloh Fernandez has a bright future ahead of him, and he'll be a great source of fuel to ignite the name's popularity on the blue team. Watch out for him in the 2011 movie Red Riding Hood.

Alternative spellings I recommed are: Shilo, Shylo, Shyloh. Pick your favourite. Or you can go with the similar Shilah, Shia, Shaya.
