Contrary to popular sources and myths, Lilith is not a vampire. She was recognized in many ancient cultures under a variety of different names and was seen as a symbol of wisdom, knowledge, independence, freedom of thought and of liberation for woman. The last is where the myth of her being "the first wife of Adam" stems from. So the story goes, Lilith refused gods laws about men being superior to woman and she proved this by being ontop during sexual intercourse. For her boldness and defiance, she was thrown out of "the garden" and then came her successor, Eve, the perfect stay at home mom. This story was invented by the bringers of christianity which holds the view that a womans place is in the home serving the husband. Woman were told to be like the good Eve, and shun the ways of "evil Lilith". This was in order to suppress the Ancient Goddess and turn her followers away from her. They made her appear as an evil force. This way, woman would not want to be independent, as this was of Lilith. To them, any woman who was independent in some way was "of the demon Lilith and was evil and un christian". Lilith's sacred animal is the Owl, symbolizing wisdom and learning. Everyone has heard the term "wise owl". The Owl has also been associated with magick and mystery, of night and freedom. Owls are also beautiful, and Lilith, although strong and independent, is also beautiful. Lilith also stands for sexual pleasure and the right to use contraception and abortion. Abortion is where the story of Lilith "killing babies" comes from. Lilith never literally killed babies, she just supported the fact that a woman can choose to have an abortion if she does not wish to have the child that she has conceived. Lilith knows the importance of freedom of choice. The idea of Lilith murdering children was another analogy that came along with christianity. Lilith is also associated with the Serpent, with Lucifer. Lucifer was too a God before the coming of christianity, and Lilith is the wife of Lucifer, God of light and knowledge. The Serpent has been the symbol of knowledge in many ancient cultures. The Hindu, Buddhist, Shaman, Celtic, etc and was only really labelled as a symbol of evil when christianity came onto the scene. Lilith represents freedom, wisdom, knowledge, independence, power, divine beauty and the right to question things and think for yourself, going against herd mentality.

Unlike the current top answer, the Lilith predates the christian belief system. Lilith was according to the Alphabet of Ben Sira, was the first wife of Adam. In no other ancient text does it state that. In the Alphabet of Ben Sira, Lilith refused to be submissive to Adam, and Adam refused to be equals. Lilith then left, and God created a new wife for Adam. Lilith shows up well before that text in ancient hebrew texts. Those refer to her as a demon who represented lust much like the demon Asmodeus in other texts. Lilith was historically shown as a purely evil figure up until the creation of the Alphabet of Ben Sira, which is considered to be a satirical work by most scholars.
Lilith is a figure in Hebrew Mythology.
