105 Yiddish Baby Names With Meanings

Is your child’s name a topic of debate between you and your partner? Are you tired of seeing the same old, better from the best names on all the web pages and are confused which one to pick for your bundle of joy? Then this Yiddish name list is just for you.

Yiddish baby names, rooted in a generation of Jewish people belonging to the Ashkenazic community, have a rich history. Yiddish language evolved from High German during the medieval times and is spoken by over 13 million Orthodox Jews throughout the world. In fact, the meaning of Yiddish itself is “Jewish German”.

Traditional Yiddish names are a fusion of Hebrew and German dialects. You must be aware or have at least heard about them if you have ever watched “The Roof”, “Fiddler”, or “An American Tail”. You can spot a Yiddish name by its creative and unusual spelling when written in Roman letters.

Yiddish names are no longer associated only with grandparents and great grandparents. They are all set for a comeback and have already set their foot in the US. Below, MomJunction has compiled a list of Yiddish baby names with meanings for you to consider. Have a look!
