Hebrew Names for Girls
Hebrew girl names include some of the most popular girls’ names of all time in the US, such as Hannah, Elizabeth and Rachel. Hebrew girls’ names, indeed, are so familiar and deeply rooted in English-speaking cultures that we often think of them as English girls’ names. For that reason, this list of Hebrew names for girls is a great place to start if you’re looking for a classic girl name that’s been widely used over time.
Along with Hannah and Elizabeth, other Hebrew girls’ names in the US top 100 include Abigail, Anna, Eliana, Eva, Leah, Maya, Naomi, and Sarah. Baby girl names popular in Israel include Tamar – especially among Jewish Israelis – Noa, Shira, and Talia.
Other traditional Hebrew names for baby girls that are more unusual yet worthy of consideration include Biblical names Dinah, Kelilah, and Susannah. And then there are modern names with Hebrew roots such as the unisex place-name Zion and the literary nickname-name Zadie, derived from Sarah. Browse our full list of Hebrew girl names here.
