Discover the most popular Hebrew boy names of 2017
As the language of the first Bibles, Hebrew appears frequently as the origin of top baby names; after all many of us choose names that appeared in the Bible, whether we know it or not. So it’s not surprising that some of the most popular baby names come from Hebrew originally.
For example, one of the very top names for baby boys comes from Hebrew: Noah, which means ‘comfort’ or ‘rest.’ Of course we all know this old name from the Bible story of Noah and the ark, and it’s still a favorite of parents. Other popular baby boy names that are from Hebrew include Elijah, Benjamin, and Jacob.
