Meaning:Praise, praised, to praise
If you’re looking for a powerfully symbolic Jewish name for baby, Judah is a great choice to have at the top of your list. Derived from the Hebrew name Yehuda, Judah means “praise,” or “praised.” While it can always remind baby that they're worthy of praise, it can also be a potent reminder to encourage them to follow your 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?
