Hebrew Names for Boys

Hebrew boy names have been in continual use for thousands of years, and with good reason: such classics as Joseph, Jonathan and Daniel are all Hebrew boys’ names. In fact, many of the most widely-used boys’ names in English-speaking countries are Hebrew in origin, include recent Number one names Noah and Jacob. But some Hebrew boy names are still far off the beaten track.

Along with Noah and Jacob, other Hebrew boys’ names in the US top 100 include Adam, Asher, Caleb, Elijah, Isaac, Levi, Nathan, and Samuel.

Baby boy names popular in Israel include Uri – especially among Jewish Israelis – Ariel, Noam, and Eitan.
