Holiday Themed Names

You might not have ever considered naming your child after a holiday. But then if your daughter is born during Hanukkah, giving her the name Leora (my light) suddenly makes a lot of sense. And it sounds pretty too.


1)    Leor (Hanukkah. Meaning: my light)

2)    Ilan (Tu Bishvat. Meaning: tree)

3)    Nissan (Passover. Meaning: the month of Nissan, when Passover occurs)

4)    Matan (Shavuot. Meaning: gift)

5)    Alon (Tu Bishvat. Meaning: oak tree)


1)    Leora (Hanukkah. Meaning: my light)

2)    Hadas (Sukkot. Meaning: myrtle)

3)    Ilana (Tu Bishvat. Meaning: tree)

4)    Meira (Hanukkah. Meaning: one who illuminates)

5)    Naomi (Shavuot. Meaning: pleasant)
