Name Number: 2
Meaning: Balance; union; receptive; partnership yin

Noa is not the female version of the name Noah, and they are pronounced differently in Hebrew. Noa was one of the five daughters of the biblical figure Zelophehad, who died without leaving a male heir. Noa and her sisters fought for - and won - the right to inherit his property. She and her sisters are among the most influential and revered women in the Bible as a result of their actions standing up for what they believed was right (Numbers 27 and on), challenging even Moses on his interpretation of the law and then prevailing. It also means "movement" in Hebrew.

Noa is also claimed as a Japanese name, loosely translated as “my love."

Meanings and history of the name Noah: | Edit

The name is Hebrew. It means rest and comfort.

Depends on your source. The male name Noah (after the man who built the Ark) would more properly be pronounced "no-akh" and means rest or comfort. The female name Noah (occurs in Numbers 27), which really is pronounced "no-ah" in hebrew, means motion.

Noah was one of the five daughters of Zelophehad, who went to the leaders of the nation of Israel and got the law changed so that they could inherit their father's land.
