Meaning:protect, shelter
Akiva is a gorgeous, modern-sounding name with Hebrew origins. Despite being around for many decades, especially within the Jewish community, Akiva’s ability to roll off the tongue has made it quite the hit in the current climate. Meaning “protect” or “shelter,” this beautifully-looking name comes with a fitting definition to match. Famous bearers of this name include writer, director, and producer Akiva Schaffer who has written for Saturday Night Live, directed for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and helped produce the Lego Movie soundtrack.
