List of Hebrew names, as derived from Modern Hebrew or Standard Hebrew, and Tiberian Hebrew, names.

Maintenance notes[edit]

This list includes any Hebrew name that is known to be used as a personal name in any cultural or religious tradition. This includes but is not limited to all existing traditions used by Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. If the gender of the name is not listed, it is of (as yet) undetermined gender.

Format[edit]

For linguistic consistency, as long as a name has an attestable or logical Hebrew form, then Hebrew form in Hebrew alphabetical order is preferred in all cases, even if none of the people who use the name are active speakers of Hebrew.

Standard Hebrew and Tiberian Hebrew[edit]

With respect to all varieties of Hebrew and to the different religious and cultural traditions that involve Hebrew, Standard Hebrew and Tiberian Hebrew are preferred for the transliterations of the names. Standard Hebrew is important because it is the modern internationally-standardized form of the language, as well as one of the official languages of the State of Israel. Likewise, Tiberian Hebrew is important because it is one of the oldest attestable forms of the language that specifies specific vowels. An example of how they are different and uniquely useful: the transliteration for עִבְרִית is ʻIvrit in Standard Hebrew and ʻIḇrîṯ in Tiberian Hebrew.

Omission of redundant variations[edit]

Some vowel variations of Biblical names are omitted because of the phonological habits of Tiberian Hebrew. In particular, when a word or name is mentioned with particular emphasis, certain long vowels can change to other vowels. The circumflexed vowels (ậ â ệ ê î ô û) tend not to change in this manner. The vowels change in this manner:

  • becomes ā
  • á becomes ā́
  • becomes ā
  • é becomes ā́
  • ī becomes ē
  • í becomes
  • ū becomes ō
  • ú becomes

Additionally, the hataf vowels (ă ĕ ŏ) can be simplified to schwa (ə) if they immediately follow a consonant that is not a guttural (א ה ח ע).

This list also omits common contractions of names. These common contractions often shorten and simplify a commonly used root component that occurs at the beginning or end of the name. These include:

  • At the beginnings of names:
    • אֲבִי ʼĂḇî ("father; leader") can become אַבְ ʼAḇ.
    • אֱלִי ʼĔlî ("my God") can become אֶלְ ʼEl. Additionally, אֱלִיּ ʼĔliyy can become אֶלְי ʼEly, but this usually only reflects a difference in the vowels and not the letters of the name.
    • יְהוֹ Yəhô (the LORD) can become יוֹ .
  • At the ends of names:
    • יָהוּ yā́hû (the LORD) can become יָה .

Contractions are not as common if a contracted spelling yields the same sequence of letters as another traditionally different name, such as the difference between אֱלִיעֶזֶר ʼĔlîʻézer and אֶלְעָזָר ʼElʻāzār.

Furthermore, names ending with שע, where this means "salvation," have traditionally had no fewer than five variant vocalizations—שַׁע šạʻ, שִׁעַ šīªʻ, שֵׁעַ šēªʻ, שֻׁעַ šūªʻ and שֹׁעַ šōªʻ. Only the most common form is included on this list, and the other forms with other vowels are to be understood to be possible variations of the name.

Israeli English transcriptions[edit]

Israelis often use certain popular transcriptions when they transcribe their names into English. These transcriptions are often simple, spelling in such a way that they do not use characters or diacritics not found in English. Typically, the differences between these transcriptions and Standard Hebrew scientific transliteration are:

  • א Álef and ע ʻáyin are typically transcribed as a simple apostrophe ('), and never at the beginning or ends of names nor before other consonants. But just as often, this apostrophe is not transcribed at all.
  • Vowel accents are never transcribed.
  • ְ Šəva, scientifically transliterated "ə", is either transcribed "e" or omitted completely. Which one is based on rather subtle (albeit largely regular) habits of Israeli Hebrew pronunciation, e.g. "Kna'an" vs. "Ashkenaz".
  • ֵי Ẓere male, scientifically written "e", is typically transcribed and pronounced "ei". ֵ Ẓere and ֶ seggol, both also scientifically transliterated "e", are still transcribed and pronounced "e".
  • Where י yod comes after a vowel and either before a consonant or at the end of a name, Israelis typically diphthongize it with the preceding vowel, and transcribe it "i", e.g. "Yishai".
  • Doubled consonants are usually transcribed single, though both "s" and "ss" are often transcribed "ss" to emphasize that it is not pronounced like English "z". "iyy" is often reduced to "iy" or simply "i", e.g. "Eliyahu" or "Eliahu".
  • Where י yod occurs between two vowels where the vowel on the right is pronounced "i", the "y" or "yy" is sometimes not transcribed at all, and sometimes an apostrophe is placed instead, e.g. "Haim" (though "Avigayil" can be found too).
  • ח Ḥet is often transcribed "h", "ch" or "kh" at the beginnings of names or after other consonants, but is typically transcribed "ch" or "kh" everywhere else, e.g. "Heshvan", "Yiftach".
  • Soft כ ḫaf is transcribed "ch" or "kh".
  • צ Ẓade is typically transcribed "tz" (e.g. "Yitzhak"), though "z" and "ts" can also be found.
  • ק Qof is typically transcribed and pronounced "k".
  • שׁ Šin is transcribed "sh".

Hebrew names in other languages[edit]

If a name of ultimate Hebrew origin exists in another language, but has in some way been modified to reflect circumstances such as a different gender, "pet form", diminutive ("little") state, or hypocoristic (shortened/nickname) state, etc., then the name probably does not belong in this list. In most of these cases, the name has become inseparably integrated with the grammar of the host language, and no longer has a distinct Hebrew counterpart. If there are name lists on Wikipedia for the host language, then such a name probably belongs in that particular list.
