[ 3 syll. me-na-hem, men-ah-em ] The baby boy name Menahem is also used as a girl name. It is pronounced as MAHNAAHHAHM †. Menahem is used predominantly in the Hebrew language and it is also derived from Hebrew origins. The name is of the meaning comforter; full of comfort. A biblical name, it is derived from the element 'nacham' meaning to comfort. The name was borne in the Bible by an evil king of Israel who massacred pregnant women in his kingdom, but it was nonetheless widely used in the Jewish community. Due to its meaning, it was originally given to children born after the death of an older sibling.
