My wife and I just had a child and we’re still not sure what to name our kid, we have exactly 16hours till the bris is Need help NOW guys!!!!May 27, 2021 9:46 am at 9:46 am #1978016Sam KleinParticipant
Can you at least beva little bit more specific if it was a boy or a girl so we can think of the best names.May 27, 2021 10:37 am at 10:37 am #1978036lowerourtuition11210Participant
sam klein: read the question. it says 16 hours before the bris. it seems we know its a boy. this weeks parsha mentions Moshe and Aharon. Another question. Are you ashkenazi or sefardi? if sefardi, name after one of the grandfathers as it is a segulah larichat yomim!
also, its a child not a “kid”. a kid is a a young goat.May 27, 2021 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #1978062☕️coffee addictParticipant
Nothing wrong with having a little fun just don’t go overboard, people really think you’re serious
Suki sounds like a good name

There are Talmudic names that seem to have vanished from popularity.
Here are a few:
Chalafta, Abaye, Sumchus, Mesharshya, Popa, Ahcho, Antignos, Avtalyon, Tarfon, and Nechunya.
You won’t be busy with guests and family wondering whose side the child is named after.May 27, 2021 2:49 pm at 2:49 pm #1978163ubiquitinParticipant
“also, its a child not a “kid”. a kid is a a young goat.”
While my elementary school teachers said the same thing, they were of course incorrect. Kid, like many words has several definitions. Feel free to check any dictionary.
if your looking for a unique name may I suggest MaherShalalchashBaz for a unique name (though meaning is a bit ominous)May 27, 2021 2:49 pm at 2:49 pm #1978169Shimon NodelParticipant
Zvid, Bruna, yeshayvav, Paltiel, elitzur, Chetzron, Elishama, Azariah, etc.
Why are these names and so many others from the chumash and gemara not in style?May 27, 2021 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1978203ShtarkButRelatableParticipant
Hes a little on the chunkier side so im thinking something along the lines of og melech habashon.
Still advice would be helpful!!May 27, 2021 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #1978215
Shlumiel. It’s a name mentioned multiple times in the beginning of Sefer Bamidbar, and it has a gorgeous meaning.May 27, 2021 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1978217mesivta bachurParticipant

some people look at Prasha, but lately the daf became in vogue. From today:
Bar Kapora (works well if you are Kapora), Meir, Avin, Aha, Yaakov, Rav (may sounds presumptuous though), Huna, Abaye, Rava (as a girsa only, so be careful), Hisda.
There is also Kushia, but this is questionable.May 28, 2021 8:12 am at 8:12 am #1978337n0mesorahParticipant

“What is going on? I thought all Jewish boys that are born this year are being named Donald?“
No, the OP is obviously either a never trumper or democrat (pick whichever one you are)May 28, 2021 12:50 pm at 12:50 pm #1978488Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
And kids in 2025 will be named Donald II?May 28, 2021 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1978523Reb EliezerParticipant
You know the story of the Shlumiel and Shlomazel. One pours soup on another. The one who pours is the Shlumiel and the one who gets poured on is the Shlomazel.May 28, 2021 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1978522
Pekak: Yes, that’s right.
Later on in Sefer Bamidbar, after he sinned and caused the deaths of thousands of Jews, he is identified as Zimri.
At the beginning of the sefer, though, he is identified as the Nassi of Shevet Shimon. At this point he was still a righteous person, and he is therefore called “Shlumiel”, which means, “at peace with Hashem”.May 29, 2021 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #1978687GotAGoodPointParticipant
Well, we’ve all been in suspense, and can you please release the stress –
what did you name the poor kid in the end?
Any of the above?
All of the above?May 30, 2021 8:41 am at 8:41 am #1978688GotAGoodPointParticipant
If the bris was delayed and you are still debating, you could take from the parsha, say, פרק י פסוק כ God.
(I think some guys think that the English translation of that name is Donald).May 30, 2021 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1978929RebYid613Participant
What did you name him?May 30, 2021 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1978935TheLastWordParticipant
What about simcha. or simcah zissel. that would cater for every gender possibility.
