Girl Names of Hebrew language or origin
Hebrew names for baby girls, with 8462 entries. Hebrew names have evolved tremendously throughout Jewish history: from Biblical names that were solely owned by the person named, to double first names during the Talmudic era, to non-Jewish secular names from other languages such as Aramaic, Greek, Latin, and English in the post-Talmudic period.
Hebrew names are very popular as baby girl names. Their usage peaked in 1901 with 7.259% of baby girls being given Hebrew names. Within the top 1000 baby names then, there were 29 Hebrew names. The names have slipped in popularity since then, but they are nevertheless of heavy use in recent times. In 2018, their total usage was 4.238% with 46 Hebrew names listed among the top 1000. Among all Hebrew names, Abigail (English, German, and Hebrew) was the most widely used, with a ranking of #11 and a usage of 0.5306%.
