Eurielle is a female given name of uncertain meaning and origin. It could be the French form of Ancient Greek Euryale, the name of several figures in Greek mythology, including one of the Gorgons. The name means “far-roaming” or “wide-roaming” made up from Ancient Greek eurús εὐρῠ́ς (wide, broad, spacious) and álē ἄλη (wandering) or alúō ἀλύω (to wander in mind, to roam). It’s also possible that Eurielle is a variant spelling of Urielle, itself the feminine spelling of Uriel, a Hebrew male name meaning “God is my light”.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European, Hebrew

  1. I love Eurielle. It reminds me about the British singer Eurielle whom I really like, as well as the similar looking Arielle which is a beautiful name too. I didn’t know it could come from Uriel, but I like Uriel too, as well as most of angelic names, so I guess it makes me love Eurielle even more haha. Although I’d use it rather for a fictional character than a real, living person, because I think the connection with Gorgons isn’t too fortunate.
