Meaning:Beautiful; Harmony
Shifrah is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin, meaning “beautiful” or “harmony.” While outside beauty is quite lovely, it may be your little one’s inner beauty that sets them apart. Shifra, a variation of this spelling, is believed to be one of the midwives who delivered and saved Israelite infants, including Moses, during the Egyptian servitude. Without the bravery of this strong figure, the prophet would not have been able to lead others to safety and salvation in later years. Inspired by her namesake, baby Shifrah may grow through goodwill, letting their inner beauty truly shine.
