Hebrew second Name
We are on our 28th week already and the name search has been awful! It has actually been the most difficult decision of my life, the pressure on finding the right name is ridiculous.
For a long time we wanted to find a Hebrew name we both liked, but that was imposible, so we finally agreed on a non-jewish name but we would like to give our baby a second name in hebrew.
The name we picked for our girl is Nikita, and I personally love Nikita Zion, but my wife doesn't like that it's two unisex names. So now the work of finding a hebrew name that works with Nikita.
Hope that helped :]
Nikita Zion sounds very much like a boy to my russian-jewish ears. Problem is, the best Hebrew names are unisex!
I think Lior, Liron and Ori would sound beautiful, but they're unisex so it's a no I guess.
I still love Nikita Zion, but there are definitely some good ones here. love Nikita Galit (or Galia), will show these to my wife tonight.
Dilemma! Loving ottillie's suggestion of Nikita Shiri - the first name that popped into my head was Shira, but that combo is way too 'a'-heavy :(
Orli is another one of my favorite Hebrew/Israeli names, and I think Nikita Orli is very pretty and exotic :)
Nikita Bina (also heavy on the end sound, but I love that Bina means "intelligence")
Nikita Keshet (okay, I know it's weird, but keshet is my favorite Hebrew word :'3)
Nikita Liat (Liat means "you are mine" - what a perfect sentiment!)
Nikita Libe (Libe comes from lev, which means "heart")
Nikita Morag (not a particularly girly name - it's unisex - but I love it)
Nikita Ronit (seconding because the Ronit I know is the sweetest girl!)
Hope this helps!
Nikita Zion sounds really male to me as well, sorry. (Russian-background American Jew)
But, Batzion/Bat-Tziyon isn't unisex at all! :D
Personally I'm actually more fond of Batzion and Benzion as a child's name then just Zion. And I know Bat- puts people off as a first name but for a middle it doesn't bother me. Batya/Batia is nice too.
I think these have been mentioned but I like them:
Nikita Yael - sort of unisex but the Biblical character was a woman. It's also a really cool name.
Haven't seen yet:
Nikita Razili - I really just love Razili and Raziela though.
Nikita Yehudit (or Judith)
Zion is the anglicized version of the word in Hebrew. Zion is Tzion in hebrew and is a unisex name. But the female version of it is Tzionah which is quite lovely.
What about some of these:
