Elimelech is a Hebrew name meaning "my God is king." Elimelech appears in the Bible as the husband of Naomi, and is the first name mentioned in the Book of Ruth. Together with his wife and sons, Elimelech endures a difficult journey to Moab to escape famine. Despite their suffering, Elimelech's daughter-in-law Ruth goes on to become an ancestor of the King of Israel, and later of Jesus. The meaning of Elimelech calls to mind the strength and perseverance that he and his family found in their faith. If your faith is a source of hope for you, too, giving baby this name could be a beautiful way to share it with them.
