Jewish Hebrew Baby Names

More Than 100 Beautiful Jewish Baby Name Ideas

A young mother and father spending time together with their son indoors.

In Judaism, it's tradition to name a newborn child after a loved one. Unlike in many other religions, it's customary to name after the deceased instead of someone still living. It's also tradition to only use the first letter of the name of the person you're honoring — and not their full moniker — to inspire your baby's name. Whether you're looking for a modern Hebrew name or traditional biblical inspiration, here are some stunning Jewish options worthy of your little one.
