Hello! Some of you might remember my last post, when I was discussing an English name for my 4th. We have decided to go with Dalia Alina, and now it's time to start thinking about her Hebrew name.
For anyone who doesn't know what a Hebrew name is, it is the name that Dalia will be Bat Mitzvahed under, the name they go by in Hebrew school, and, more important currently, the name she will recieve during her Baby Naming ceremony (the girl version of a Bris, minus the circumsision). We have already chosen a few possible names, and we are NOT looking for any suggestions.
My older childrens Hebrew names are listed below with the English transliteration, pronunciation, Hebrew lettering, and what it means:
Elliot - Yonatan (Yo-Na-Tan). It means "God has given". The Hebrew lettering is: יוֹנָתָן
Silas - Amichai (Am-ee-kai). It means "My people are alive". The Hebrew lettering is:
Miles - Elior (l-e-or). It means "My god is my light". The Hebrew lettering is:אֱלִיאוֹר
For Dalia, we are thinking of the Hebrew name Tikva (Tick-vah) which means "Hope" and the Hebrew lettering is:
Keren (Pronounced like Karen but with an E) which means "Ray of light" and the Hebrew lettering is:קֶרֶן, or Herut (eh-root) which means freedom and the Hebrew letttering is:
Based on the meaning, pronunciation, and how the letters look, which do you think would fit best?
