Meaning:Stone of help; Father of light
Eb is a masculine name of Hebrew origin that sports plenty of meaning in its single syllable. It serves as a nickname for Ebenezer—but don’t worry about turning baby into a scrooge. Translating to “stone of help,” this name has connections to the biblical story of Samuel, who set up a stone to commemorate God’s assistance in the Isrealites’ defeat of the Philistines. This makes Eb a short, sweet way to connect baby to your faith. Eb can also act as a nickname for Abner, which means “father of light.” Whether baby grows to have a tough-as-stone disposition or a dazzling inner light, the name Eb will make for a lovely fit.
