Greetings, I gather that אייל (ayal) means “stag” i.e. a male deer – is that correct, please? Given its use in the name of the organization originally formed by members of the IDF is it a name which resonates in a kind of patriotic way with Israelis? http://ayalim.org.il/en-about/ In that case, what does איילון mean, as used in נחל איילון and now also in נתיבי איילון? It seems to be made up of the above word אייל and the suffix ון (on). Is it possible to assign a meaning to this suffix? Best wishes, and many thanks, Simon PS Is אייל used in everyday colloquial language too?
