Gender: M Meaning of Noam: "pleasantness, charm, tenderness" Origin of Noam: Hebrew

Noam is an underused modern Hebrew name with any number of attractive attributes attached to its meaning; it doesn't have the biblical weight of Noah, but could make a more distinctive alternative to that popular choice. Noam is also a place-name in south Israel, where it is sometime used for girls. Its most prominent bearer is the distinguished linguist and social activist Noam Chomsky (born Avram Noam).

Noaz is an even more unusual Hebrew choice.
