I can find nothing to suggest a tie between the word vili and the meaning you mention.  All I find is connected with the meaning of free will, intestines and the veil of a nunn.  But the word Vilne was a common name for patches of grass, many grassy areas still have names wich are variations of this. Vin is a well known word for grassy land.  The original word may very well have been vilni.  It's quite common in language development for the l to fall away in connection with n, also the opposite may happen, the n disappering, so we might be dealing with two versions of an older word, one version wich stayed alive in the language an one we only find residues of in the names of places. I am quite curious about where you have your information about vidars home from?

Vidar lives in Vili, but does anyone know the meaning of Vili?
Is it like "silent grasses" or something?
