Chaim Origin and Meaning

The name Chaim is a boy's name of Hebrew origin meaning "life".
Despite being one of the rare boy names that mean life, Chaim barely survived early Jewish immigration, being watered down to Hyman and Hymie. Today, the original seems like the most promising form of the name, familiar thanks to bestselling author Chaim Potok.
