Kiskil-lilla is a Sumerian variant transcription of Hebrew feminine name Lilith of Assyrian origin, derived from lilitu meaning "of the night, belonging to the night". Lili are Sumerian she-demons. The Hebrew Lilith and Akkadian Līlītu are female adjectives from the Proto-Semitic root LYL "night", literally translating as nocturnal "female night being/demon", other variants are "night creatures", "night monster", "night hag", or "screech owl".
Lilith is a female demon figure found in Mesopotamian mythology and Jewish folklore, associated with sexual temptation, storms, disease, illness, and death. In some Jewish mystical writings she is said to be the first wife of Adam; she was replaced by Eve and banished from Eden because she was not submissive to him; their offspring were demons and spirits. She was especially feared in medieval Judaism for her purported ability to harm young children, and amulets were once worn to protect children from Lilith's harm.
