Meaning:High father; Father of multitudes; Father of nations
Abraham is a boy’s name of Hebrew origin, meaning “high father,” “father of multitudes,” or “father of a nation.” Named after the founder of the Jewish people, Abraham will certainly be able to see the significance of his name in this faith. If you do not plan to raise your little one following Judaism, there are still ample influences he can look to for positive guidance in life. Take, for example, Abraham Lincoln, the US president who abolished slavery during his time in office. Powerful, wise, and brave, this man, along with the religious figure, can inspire a young man of nobility and understanding.
