I understand that the list of names below is a work in progress, but it is never soon enough to make it better.


Two comments about the male name for Israel, “Naom”:

1.      There is no such name that I know, it is probably a misspelling for “Noam”.

2.      Anyway this is not a good example for a male name, since it is used both for boys and girls (I have a grand-daughter with this name). I suggest to use a male –only name such as David or Moshe (= Moses).

בברכה,  מתתיהו

Shalom (Regards),  Mati

Are we ok to merge this?


I was actioned to provide a list of names people could use.  I started, but found it was taking me a lot of time, especially when i needed to understand the name usage in various countries.  For what it's worth, here's the list i have so far, but i decided instead to add a paragraph that encourages use of names from around the world, and a balance between male and female names.

French        Francois    Marie-Claire
Germany    Lukas        Helga
Poland        Krzysztof    Katarzyna
Finland        Veeti        Aada
Iceland        Gunnar        Birta
Greece        Ioannis        Angeliki
Russia        Sergei        Natalia
India        Pranav        Ananya
Chile        Vicente        Fernanda
Argentina    Ricardo        Graciela
Japan        Kenzo        Mitsuki
