    Help me find more inspiration!

    I am looking for Hebrew/Israeli/Jewish/Yiddish names for my son-to-be. I seem to be running in circles with the same suggestions on websites. Anyone have any secret websites I should look at? I am getting really frustrated.

    Ok, I am obsessed with Jewish traditions and names!
    Here is a list of great Hebrew names:
    Noam
    Yoav
    Matan
    Ori
    Asher

    And here is a website of many Hebrew names

    I absolutely love the pp's suggestion of Noam! My favorite Hebrew boys' name ever. If I had even an ounce of Jewish blood in me, I would so use it! I really like Yonah/Jonah/Jonas, too.

    What about:

    Aharon
    Shmuel (sp? I prefer the more English Samuel, but either is lovely)
    Asher
    Boaz (LOVE this, with the nn Bo/Beau!)
    Kalev/Calev/Caleb (not sure what the original Hebrew spelling is... love the name, though!)
    Daniel
    Ephraim/Efraim
    Ezra
    Feivel
    Isaac (I think Isaac is much more usable than Yitzak, but both are nice)
    Yaacov/Yakov/Ya'akov (I've seen all these as accepted spellings, not sure which is the best, but I absolutely love it! Yakov/Ya'akov is so much more interesting than Jacob, imo!)
    Ari
    Lior
    Micah
    Joshua/Yehoshua
    Natanel/Nathaniel
    Ovadya (Obediah?)
    Seth/Set
    Ziv
    Zechariah

    Good luck!
