Zoilus is the Latinized form of an Ancient Greek male name meaning “alive, living, life”, which derives from the same source as Zoe. It derives from PIE root word *gʷeyh₃- (to live). It’s the name of an Ancient Greek grammarian, philosopher, and literary critic who was very critical of Homer’s work, so much so that he was known as Homeromastix meaning “Homer whipper” or “Homer scourge”.
