Meanings and history of the name Noah

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.
