Expectant parents from overseas, looking for information about Hebrew baby names, often visit this site. Here are recent comments on Popular Israeli Names for Girls:
Update: I’ve opened a Forum for Israeli Baby Name Help
Due Soon in Canada: We’re thinking about Dov for a boy and Savyon for a girl (I know it’s more common for boys but we like it for a girl). Are these names associated with religious/secular, or have any bad connotations in Israel I should be aware of?
Naima192: I want to thank you so much for this post . I found it last year and I keep coming back to it as we got pregnant and recently found out the sex of the baby. We found out today that we are having a girl, and we want very much to give her an Israeli/Hebrew name. I-d love to find out if Michal is still popular among little girls. What about Naama? Are there any names that begin with a B for girls, aside from Batya, Batsheva, Bracha, etc.? Thanks for your thoughts!
Please weigh in with your thoughts.
Israeli readers: We did this before, but it’s time for an update. Let us know what people in your neighborhood are naming babies these days.
