Ayelet Origin and Meaning

The name Ayelet is a girl's name of Hebrew origin meaning "deer, gazelle".
Ayelet is an unusual -- and somewhat challenging -- Israeli name familiar thanks to sometimes controversial Jerusalem-born novelist-essayist Ayelet Waldman.

Well used in Israel, the name was taken from the phrase 'ayelet hashachar', meaning 'gazelle of dawn', the morning star.

Other related Hebrew choices with the same meaning are Aya and Ayala.
