The name Itzak is a variant spelling of the Hebrew names Yitzhak, Itzhak, and Isaac. This boy’s name, meaning “laughter”, is deeply rooted in the biblical narrative, where Sarah, the wife of Abraham, laughed upon hearing that she would bear a son in her old age. As a result, when her son was born, he was named Isaac, symbolizing her laughter. The story of Isaac is significant in the religious traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. To share your joy at the arrival of baby, or symbolize your faith, Itzak is a timeless choice.
