22 Hebrew Baby Names Inspired by Valentine’s Day

vday

Roses, expensive necklaces, lingerie, chocolate — these are the globally recognized symbols of the very commercialized Valentine’s Day.

It’s true that V-Day is definitely not a Jewish holiday — its origins are believed to be derived from Roman Catholics — and there’s actually a Jewish holiday for love, Tu B’Av that’s celebrated over the summer. Still, February 14th lends another opportunity to woo your loved ones (and is wooing ever wrong? No.)

Perhaps more important, Valentine’s Day is particularly great for pregnant women with upcoming due dates — you’ve got an added excuse to gobble all those heart-shaped goodies.

Whether or not you celebrate this romantic holiday, we rounded up the top Hebrew baby names inspired by Valentine’s Day — or, more generally, this thing called LOVE — to bestow upon your new bundle of joy.

Girls

1. Ardella. Ardella is a Hebrew name for girls that means “blooming field.” Gifting flowers is a tried-and-true Valentine’s Day tradition, and since this biblical name is rare in the U.S., we’re calling for a comeback.

2. Carmel. Carmel is a Hebrew name for girls that means “God’s vineyard.” Because splitting a bottle of red wine with your lover screams Valentine’s Day, and everyone loves wine!

3. Mia. Mia is a Hebrew name for girls that means “darling.”

4. Ada. Ada is a Hebrew name for girls that means “jewel” or “ornament.”

5. Ahava. Ahava is a Hebrew name for girls that means “love.”
