11778 Judaism Baby Names With Meanings

There are several traditions involved in choosing a Judaism name. In Ashkenazi community, children are named after a deceased relative. These folks believe that a person’s name and soul is interconnected. So it would bring bad luck to name a child after a living person. On the other hand, in the Sephardic community, it is common to name a child after a living relative. The traditions are opposite, but one thing is common – naming the children after an admired family member. It’s their way of honoring the dead and keeping their memories alive.

Those who do not want to name their children after relatives opt for Biblical names. They pick names of characters whose stories and personalities resonate with them. So there’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to naming in Judaism, except one. Every child must be given two names, first Hebrew and second, a secular name for everyday use. The secular names must correspond to the traditional name in some way or the other. It could even be the anglicized version of the same.
