Prepare to Fall for These 20 Unique Jewish Hebrew Names

Hebrew baby names are seeing a surge in popularity, and whether or not you have Jewish roots, you may still want to give them a moniker that means something to you, others, and one day, to them. Although all titles have a meaning of sorts, some go back further and are rooted in history; Hebrew baby names fit that bill and have a charm all of their own. Sure, you’ve seen Hebrew names before like Abigail or Noah, but there are plenty of less popular options that likely flew under the radar. Below you will find 20 unique Hebrew baby names we’re loving and hope you will too.

 

Hebrew Names For Girls

Ayala

Ayala is a Hebrew female given name meaning “gazelle.” Even though it sounds a bit like Layla, also a gorgeous Hebrew name for girls, Ayala is much more exotic.

 

Bayla

The name Baila—also spelled Bayla—is derived from the Biblical Hebrew name, meaning “bashful.”

 

Ilana

If you’re on the hunt for a nature baby name that’s slightly different but still classically pretty, Ilana, meaning “tree,” is right for you.

 

Keziah

Keziah, also spelled Kezia was the second of the three daughters born to Job in the Hebrew Bible. The name means “cassia tree” and is an excellent opinion for parents who want something unique with traditional ties.

 

Levana

Levana may very well be our favorite Hebrew baby name for girls. This radiant choice means “white” and “moon” derived from the Hebrew name Lebanah.

 

Liora

The name Liora has a romantic, strong, and distinctive ring to it and means “my light“.

 

Odeya

This Hebrew name that translates to “I will thank God” is full of charisma and spark.

 

Shira

This lovely Hebrew name means “poetry” or “song,” which will be perfect for your little muse.

 

Shayna

The name Shaina sometimes spelled Shayna or Shana, is a feminine name of Yiddish origin, meaning “beautiful” or “lovely” and is also often used as a nickname for Shoshana, an ancient form of Susannah, meaning “lily.”

 

Zera

A Hebrew girl’s name meaning “seed.” We’re in love with the way Zera sounds, plus it’s short and sweet, so no nickname is necessary.

 

Hebrew Names For Boys

Avi

This adorable Hebrew title means “father,” and we love Avi for a short, sweet, and strong name.

 

Boaz

This moniker means “strength or swiftness” in Hebrew, so it’s ideal if you’re looking for a cute and robust title for your little one.

 

Chanan

This Hebrew name reminds us of the English name Channing but sounds more solid. In Hebrew, the meaning of the name Chanan is “cloud.”


Davian

This variant of David sounds cool and hip and means “adored.”

 

Eben

If you love the names Elijah and Ethan but want something a bit more off the beaten path, consider Eben. It means “stone of help“, which evokes a strength of spirit and goodwill.

 

Hanan

Hanan is the male counterpart to Hannah, coming from the same Hebrew word meaning “grace or favor.” 

 

Noam

This Hebrew name means “pleasantness” and is the male version of the female No’omi (“Naomi” or “Noemi”). Noam is the perfect Hebrew name if you’re looking for something less popular than Noah or Liam, and bonus: it sounds like a combination of the two.

 

Osher

Osher is a popular Hebrew baby name for a good reason: it translates to “happiness.”

 


Raziel

The Hebrew name translates to “secret of God” and can be shortened to just “Raz.” Adorable? Pretty much.

 


Tobin

Tobin is a sweet Hebrew baby name for boys that means “goodness of God,” We think it evokes an expansive, peaceful feeling.

    I have a fascination with names – my husband and I named our son Zachary
    forty years ago when no one was yet using the name. Now it’s not uncommon! Hebrew has some wonderful names – though we are Christians. we honor and appreciate the glorious array of Hebrew names.
