As an official language of Israel and spoken by more than nine million people worldwide, Hebrew is one of the oldest languages still in use. We can trace many of our most popular baby names to Hebrew; in fact, some of the names you’re considering might be of Hebrew origin without you even realizing it!
Names like Ava, Isabella, Amelia, and Abigail have more in common than just their super popular status: they’re also all of Hebrew origin. Take a look at this list to see the meanings and roots of these names; they’re often biblical in nature.
