Gender: F Meaning of Noah: "rest, comfort" Origin of Noah: Hebrew

The ark-builder's spelling of this name was brought into the realm of female possibility when country singer Billy Ray Cyrus gave it to his daughter. If you love the sound of this name for a girl, you might more properly choose Noa, which sounds just the same and shares a Biblical origin but is a separate name with its own origin and meaning. Noa is very popular for girls in Israel as well as Spain and The Netherlands.
