Meaning of the baby name LI-LIT.

  

LI-LIT.  Assyrian equivalent of Hebrew Lilith (q.v.).  An evil spirit, who the Arab writers say was the first wife of Adam, and that her children were the jins or devils.  She is said to have had 784 children, as the letters of her name have this numerical value.  Her name is found in the Assyrian inscriptions as Li-lit, "the black," an "evil spirit."  She was said to have stimulated nocturnal impurities, and to have been more especially dangerous to married women at the birth of their first child, upon which occasion the Arabian nurses still throw stones at the foot of the bed to drive her away. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
