This biblical name has long been a favorite in Jewish families—and was loved by 17th-century Puritans too—but is more popular than ever, moving toward the top 100 girls' names since 1989. In the Old Testament, Naomi was the wise mother-in-law of Ruth who decides to call herself Mara after losing her husband and sons. In French, the name takes a twist and becomes Noemie, while in Italian it’s Noemi.
