Jewish Baby Names That Start With the Letter ‘F’


Design by Mollie Suss

The Biblical story of David and Goliath teaches us not to count out the underdog — that despite someone’s size, they can still overcome the odds.

It is with this in mind that we now look at popular Jewish baby names that begin with the letter “F.” In previous weeks, we’ve discovered extensive lists of Jewish baby names from “A” to “E.” This is not the case with the letter “F.” But while this list of names is short, it’s also bursting with unique options!

Seriously, do yourself a favor and check out these fabulous Jewish baby names!


1. Faiga — In Yiddish, Faiga means “bird.” If you aren’t a fan of this particular spelling, however, never fear! This name can also be spelled “Feiga,” “Fayga,” “Faige” and “Faigah.” With a name like Faiga, your little one might just have a voice as beautiful as a songbird.

2. Fermoza — Hello, gorgeous — or should we say, hello, Fermoza? In Ladino, Fermoza means “beautiful.”

3. Frayda / Fraydel — The names Frayda and Fraydel both mean “joy” in Yiddish, and we all know there’s nothing more joyful than a new baby.

4. Fruma — Perhaps the most famous Fruma of them all is Fruma-Sarah, the late wife of Lazar Wolf from “Fiddler on the Roof.” But despite the ghostly associations with the name Fruma, perhaps your daughter could bring the name some new life! In Yiddish, Fruma means “righteous.”


 5. Faivish — Faivish is the perfect name for the little boy who is the light of your life. In Yiddish, Faivish means “shining” or “bright.”

6. Feivel — “Fiiiiievel! Fievel Mouuuuuskewitz!” The name Feivel will always live on as the main character from the Jewish animated classic “An American Tail,” but it could also live on in your child. In Yiddish, Feivel means “bright.”

7. Fishel — Meaning “little fish,” Fishel has to be one of the cutest Yiddish names ever. It’s also the perfect excuse to read your baby books like “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish” or “The Rainbow Fish,” or show him “Finding Nemo.” An alternate spelling is “Fischel.”
