Other Origin(s):Hebrew
There's something indescribably satisfying about names that have an almost symmetrical quality when written down. Like Maccabee, a rare gem that's destined to be a winning choice for your baby boy. Maccabee, with its double Cs and Es looks great and sounds memorable, too! Despite its almost sing-song quality, this name is connected to rebellions and battle. It stems from Aramaic origins and is also the Hebrew word for “hammer.” In history, the Mattathias family were known as the Maccabees on account of the fierce attacks and blows hammered down on their enemies. Whether you like the look and lyrical sound of Maccabee or feel a connection to its history, this is certainly an interesting choice for baby.
