Edom is an incredibly rare masculine name of Hebrew origin. As a nickname for Esau, a figure mentioned in several Hebrew and Christian scriptures, Edom means “red.” Born “red all over” and requesting “red pottage” (likely red lentil stew) from his brother Jacob, Esau is potentially the reason Edom exists today. Edom was also an ancient kingdom and biblical empire located in Transjordan (modern: Jordan and Israel), described to have aided in the destruction of the state of Judea. Quite the elusive title, Edom is a bold choice with its unique charm and controversial history sure to spark lively conversation.
