Barak is a boy's name of Hebrew and Arabic origin, sure to command the attention of all who hear it. As a variant of Barakat, Barak means “blessings” and showers wishes of good fortune on your little one. Strong in its pronunciation, Barak also stems from the Hebrew root b-r-q, which means “lightning.” Charged with a thunderous force, Barak is rooted in the biblical military leader who led the Israelites in the great Battle of Mount Tabor. Under the guidance of revered prophetess Deborah, Barak successfully strikes down the Canaanites army with the advantage of heavy rain pour. Known for his enduring faith in Deborah to the sacrifice of all glory, Barak endures as a symbol of valor without want of praise.
