    Shiloh (variant transcription of Shilo) is a Biblical place name. It was a gathering place and sanctuary of the Hebrew at the time of the Judges, between Jericho and Sachem.

    It is also used as a reference to the Messiah, although this is likely a mistranslation of ancient Hebrew. Shiloh or Shilo has always, linguistically, indicated a place or a property of a place.

    Although very occasionally bestowed on girls, Shiloh remains chiefly a male name.

    brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie named their daughter Shiloh Nouvel.
