Oren is a boy’s name with roots in Hebrew. In the Book of Chronicles, Oren is one of the five sons of Jerahmeel, making it a popular name among Jewish parents. Oren is also a great choice for parents with a green thumb, as it means “pine” or “ash.” These meanings may come as a surprise to tree lovers, as ash and pine are pretty different from each other. Ash is a hardwood, while pine is a softwood; ashes have leaves, while pines have needles; ashes are deciduous, whereas pines are coniferous. Both, however, are powerful symbols of longevity. Ash trees are known for their healing properties, while pines represent fertility, wisdom, and long life—making Oren an evergreen choice for baby.
