Erez is a masculine name of Hebrew origin, meaning “cedar.” A revered tree in many cultures, cedar is especially cherished in Lebanon. Cedar symbolizes strength, everlasting life, and resilience and is referred to in the Old Testament as the “first of trees” and the “glory of Lebanon.” In ancient Mesopotamian mythology, The Cedar Forest of Lebanon (today aka The Cedars of God) was believed to be divine woodland protected by the gods and features in The Epic of Gilgamesh. Erez carries age-old eminence and makes a beautiful nature or tree-inspired name for your little sapling. Timeless and rare, may baby Erez grow with resilience and courage, knowing within them lies the strength of cedar.
