Hyman is a beautiful boy’s name of Yiddish origin. Coming from the Hebrew name Chaim, Hyman—bold as a breath of fresh air—means “life.” While the name Hyman originates from Chaim, it’s also said to be rooted in the name Hayim, which, in Kabbalah, holds the secret to a happy heart and good health. Hyman was once a popular first name for American athletes, too. Baseball players Hyman Cohen and Hyman “Hank” Greenberg were known as some of Hyman’s biggest bat-and-ball bearers.
