Origin:Hebrew
Meaning:stream; ram's horn
A boy’s name of Hebrew origins, Jubal means “stream” or “ram’s horn.” The latter meaning comes from Jubilee, an event in Jewish history that celebrates the Israelites' release from bondage. During this event, a ram’s horn trumpet was blown. Jubal is also a figure in the Hebrew Bible. He is considered the “inventor of music” because he fashioned the first instruments: the lyre, the harp, and the pipe. This jubilant-sounding name will gift baby Jubal not only with a deep spiritual connection to Judaism, but a lifelong love of music.
