Jewish Hebrew Baby Names

Simply Stunning Jewish Baby Name Ideas

In Judaism, it's tradition to name a newborn child after a loved one. However, unlike many other religions, it's customary not only to name after the deceased instead of someone still living, but also to only use the first letter 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.
