For the Prince of Persia character, see Elika (Prince of Persia).
Elika (Persian: الیکا) or Ileka is a village in Baladeh District of Nur County in Mazandaran Province of Iran, on the road from Tehran to the Caspian Sea (Chaloos Road). It is close to Yush, where the famous Iranian poet Nima Yushij was born. The village was known for coal mines that were harvested during 1930s until 1970s.
Elika is also a feminine first name in the Persian language, meaning "Mother Earth" or a "fruitful, blooming tree" or "wild cherry". It is fairly uncommon, with two musicians, two actresses, and a video-game character (the young barefoot princess of the Ahura, servants of Ormazd, god of light and guardians of the Tree of Life in the game Prince of Persia) appearing at the top of current searches.
