If you’re looking for a powerfully symbolic Jewish name for baby, Judah should be at the top of your list. Derived from the Hebrew name Yehuda, Judah means “praise,” or “praised,” a potent reminder to baby to lead a life of faith. In the Hebrew Bible, Judah is the fourth son of Jacob and Leah and the founder of the Tribe of Judah. Incidentally, this means he is also the namesake of the land of Judea and the word Jew. If that’s not something to praise, what is?
