Other Origin(s):Egyptian
Meaning:Hot, warm; Servant; Majesty
Ham is a name of Hebrew origin, meaning “hot” or “warm.” While you may know Ham as one of the biblical sons of Noah, this short but sweet boy’s name has many other beautiful meanings for baby. Possibly borrowed from the Egyptian expression ḥm, meaning “servant” or “majesty,” Ham might just have a kingdom ready for your mini-monarch to command. Ham is a family name flaunted by American athletes, too. Former NBA coach Darvin Ham and retired footballer Jack Ham are some of its ball-playing bearers.
