Hebrew boy names are some of the oldest known names in existence.This is a collection of boy baby names from Hebrew along with their meanings. If you are Jewish or know Jewish friends/relatives then you will appreciate that certain religious rituals require Hebrew boy (or girls)names. Hebrew names, for example are used for calling people to the Torah and for certain prayers, such as the memorial prayer or the prayer for the sick. In addition, legal documents, such as the marriage contract or ketubah, also use the Hebrew name. The Sages say that naming a baby is a statement of his character, his specialness, and his path in life. For at the beginning of life we give a name, and at the end of life a "good name" is all we take with us.(Talmud - Brachot 7b; Arizal - Sha'ar HaGilgulim 24b). Naming a Jewish baby is not only a statement of what you hope he will become, but also where he comes from. On particular group of Jews (Ashkenazi) also have the custom of naming a child after a relative who has passed away and in this way keeps the name and of course the memory alive.

However, this doesn't stop "gentiles" using Hebrew names as many are found in the Holy Bible which is used by religions such as Holy Catholic and Roman Catholic Churches. You may also be interested in the Biblical Boys name pages
