Thank you for all of your input. We still haven’t chosen a name.
I was wondering about 2 more names that we’re considering: Sela and Lilah. Are either of these in use in Israel? How are they perceived?
Thanks again for all of your help.
Anyone have suggestions for modern israeli boy’s names that start with the letter R ? Also, my husband likes the idea of a middle name after a place in Israel, like Negev or Golan–are these real Israeli names? Any other suggestions?
I don’t know if this dialogue is continuing but my husband and I are trying desperately to find a Hebrew boy name that ends with V. My husband insists he wants our baby’s name to end with V like our son Negev. I love the idea of Erev but my cousin in Israel says it’s more a word than a name. Any other ideas? We have the girl name chosen, but finding a boy name that isn’t Nadav or Raviv is hard! Please help!!!
Daniella continues: Is the name Raziel popular in Israel?
I asked this question on the Mother in Israel Facebook page.
Is it bizarre to name a boy after to women? Two of my female relatives that I was very close to recently passed. This might potentially be the last child born for many years so I really want to honor them. On the other hand I dont want my son (if it is a boy) to feel uncomfortable with it.
We are thinking of Zev LeeAm. Any thoughts on the spelling? I am trying to come up with a way that it will be pronounced correctly and not Liam.
Just curious how popular Leila is in Israel? How about Leela/Lila?
Thank you for your input.
