Product Description

The Hebrew name is a part of the Jewish identity. Here are over 5,000 listings along with advice on choosing names, nicknames, and naming ceremonies, with accurate definitions and translations. Almost every Jewish child in the United States recieves two names-one in English and the other in Hebrew. For most parents, the Hebrew name is as important as the English one. But how can you find a Hebrew name for your child? What kind of name is most appropriate for a baby who is born in the spring, or in the winter, or on one of the Jewish holidays like Passover, Hanukkah, Purim, Sukkoth or Shavuot? Here is a wide selection of traditional and contemporary Hebrew names-names from the Bible, names of Israeli flowers, names related to Jewish holidays, names with poetic or descriptive meanings-each in English, Hbrew characters, and transliterated English. Each name features a short explanation of its meaning and root, along with a rating that indicates whether the name is old, common or very popular. Here is the ideal reference for new and expectant parents, grandparents, or those simply wishing to choose a Hebrew name for themselves, complete with linguistic guideliines for inventing original names that make sense and convey the beauty and genius of the Hebrew language.
