Peleg is a popular Hebrew name for boys meaning “division.” The first record of it can be found in the Hebrew Bible as the name of one of two sons of Eber, an ancestor of the Ishmaelites and Israelites. According to this account, it was during the time of Peleg that the earth was divided, although it’s unclear whether it refers to the splitting of the super-continent Pangea or the allotment of the earth among the three sons of Noah. It's also said that Peleg lived to the age of 239 years, surrounded by his family. If you wish your little one to live a long and happy life, this name is a good start.
