Nechama is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin. The title is traditionally given to Jewish babies born around the time of Tisha B'av, a time of sadness. What better addition to bring joy to end a sorrowful period than a new baby? The name means “comfort” and “solace,” so it comes as no surprise that Nechama will bring a sense of peace to your home, albeit with a few tears and long nights, too! This also happens to be the female form of Nachum, a minor prophet in the bible. Though he may only have played a small role, the figure can connect Nechama to her faith and remind her that even the smallest acts can make a big difference.
