The Name Hebrew is Jewish.
Names are a very important part of a person’s identity. In fact, different names are a part of different cultures; for example, Marcello is an Italian name, Maria is a Mexican name Chiquita seems to be an African American name, and Rachel is a name that comes from the Bible, specifically the name Rachel is a name from the Old Testament.
Names are a very important part of our essences and names are a part of our identity and culture. In addition, certain names are used in certain cultures. There are certain names that are used in the Mexican culture, the Italian culture, the Irish culture, and the Jewish culture. Examples of Mexican names could include Pedro, Raul, Mario, and Maria; Italian names could include Marcello, Andrea, Giovanni, and Sophia; Irish names could include Colin, Patrick, Kara, and Ireland; Jewish names could include Ira, Rachel, and Élan. The name Hebrew is part of the Jewish culture and it comes from the Bible, specifically the Old Testament. The name Hebrew began with God, Adam, Eve, and the Garden of Eden. In addition, in the Garden of Eden there was the forbidden fruit which was a golden apple that Eve tempted Adam to eat thus exposing both their naked bodies to each other. Jewish names in the Bible also include Aaron, Cain, Abel, Esther, Rachel, Leah, Jacob, Abel, and Joseph. Joseph as far as Jewish names goes is a very famous name because there is a very famous story about Joseph’s coat of many colors. In fact, this Bible story has been turned into an award winning play by Andrew Lloyd Weber called Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. It seems that the name Hebrew is both interesting and colorful.
Jewish names are very important in the Jewish religion and in the Jewish culture. When a baby is born into the Jewish faith the baby is given both English and a Hebrew name if the baby is born in the United States. If the baby is born in Israel it is given only a Hebrew name. Jewish babies are named in synagogue a couple of weeks after they are born. Jewish babies are usually named after a family member who has passed away. The baby’s Hebrew name is similar to the person’s name that has passed away in their family. For example, my Hebrew name is after my mother’s mother. And my middle name was given to me in remembrance of one of my mom’s aunt’s. I happen to love my name which is Rachel Honey Heller. My brother’s Hebrew name is Fivel which is in remembrance of my great grandmother. The name Hebrew doesn’t believe in using the name Junior like in the Christian religion. This is because Jewish culture and Jewish religion doesn’t believe in naming people after people that are still living because Jews believe that this is bad omen. In addition, naming a baby after someone who is still living represents a lack of creativity on the part of the people that name the baby, who are usually the parents of the baby. A person should have their own identity and uniqueness; a name usually does give a person both of those things. Naming people with the label of Junior doesn’t give then the uniqueness that they deserve to have throughout their lives. The name Hebrew just like the name Italian, the name Irish, the name French, and the name Mexican often have certain expectations and stereotypes such as the Irish names of Colin, Patrick, Kara, and Molly might suggest that they are all green eyed, red haired, quick tempered, and love corned beef and cabbage. The name Italian could suggest that all Italians love art, food, are all lovers, and speak native Italian. Jewish names might suggest being rich, being cheap, and being able to speak fluent Hebrew. All names have certain connotations to them but they give people a sense of pride and identity. Being Jewish, I love the name Hebrew.
