The Comprehensive Dictionary of English & Hebrew First Names

Add To Cart
The most comprehensive volume ever prepared on the subject. Rabbi Kolatch expands on his previous efforts by introducing hundreds of new Hebrew names that have become popular in both Israel and the Diaspora. He thereby provides an indispensable resource for parents, sociologists, and linguistic scholars.

The Comprehensive Dictionary of English & Hebrew First Names begins with an introduction that explains the origins of names and the Jewish naming process. It discusses the Bible as a source of names, names with positive attributes, celebrity names, Masculine/feminine interchanges, and more. Wide-ranging in scope, the dictionary also explains the ceremonies traditionally followed for naming a boy and a girl and explores Jewish customs relating to naming children after relatives, naming an adopted child, and naming a convert.

The entries are presented alphabetically, followed by the Hebrew spelling in vocalized Hebrew script. The language(s) from which the name derives as well as its literal meaning are indicated. Hebrew equivalents are offered in transliterated English. Included is an Index of Names by Meaning.
