Hebrew Baby Girl Names

Jewish girl names

You may not be aware that names such as Sarah, Anna, Lea and Naomi all stem from Hebrew roots – though now popularized in Western culture. Of course, that doesn’t mean we should overlook the religious connotations when choosing Hebrew names for girls.

Many Hebrew baby girl names appear in the Bible, for example, Devorah – a nurse featured in Genesis, 35:8. Likewise, Chana appears when giving birth to the prophet Samuel.

Some popular Hebrew girl names have masculine links, such as the father/daughter relationship. We see this with names such as:

  1. Abi/Abigail/Avigail – ‘my father’s delight’
  2. Abijah – ‘God is my father’
  3. Bathsheba – ‘daughter of the vow.’

What girl name means gift from God?

But while Hebrew girl names may refer to biological fathers, there are also links to God as a father. For example, Amaris means ‘given by God’, while Isabella means the opposite – ‘pledged to God.’

Anglicized variants of Hebrew names for girls

For those who struggle with spelling or pronunciation, many Hebrew baby girl names are closely linked to Anglicized variants. For example, we have seen Avigail and Abigail above. Some other example of these Hebrew/Western baby name ‘cognates’ include:

  1. Aneta – variant of Anita meaning ‘gracious, merciful’
  2. Devorah – variant form of Deborah meaning ‘from a bee swarm’
  3. Juana – also seen in Christian cultures such as the Spanish form of Juan, this is a variant of Joanna and means ‘God is merciful’
  4. Lisbet – similar to ‘Elisabeth’, this means ‘promise of God.’

What is the rarest girl name?

Once again, biblical inspiration makes up some of the rarer Jewish girls’ names. In a traditional context, we have names such as Dinah, Kelilah and Susannah. However, if you’re looking for a more modern touch, you might prefer the unisex Zion. Alternatively, Zadie is a derivative of Sarah.

What is the Hebrew name for beautiful?

Like many other cultures, Jewish names for girls often center around beauty. For example Bilha is the Jewish version of Bella, known in Italian as ‘beautiful.’ Once again, Hebrew names starting with A fit these themes, with Abigail being referred to as a beautiful biblical character.

We also see examples with Ester, Hadar and Nava. If you’re not sure about spelling, try this comprehensive list of Jewish girl names for beautiful:

What is the Hebrew name for princess?

You can probably think of many Jewish actors whose names were inspired by the Hebrew word for ‘princess.’ Sarah Michelle Gellar is one example, with Sarah meaning ‘princess’ and Sarai meaning ‘my princess.’

Likewise, Sarika means ‘ladylike’ or ‘princess’. Sarah is the Westernized version of this term for ‘princess’, which is probably why actress Sarah Silverman calls her character Vanellope a ‘Jewish Disney princess!
