1. How to Write Your Name in Hebrew

Top

 

Israeli people use the Hebrew alphabet to write English names. To write your English name in Hebrew, first you need to know the basics of the alphabet.

The easiest way is to find a Hebrew letter that corresponds to the pronunciation of your Hebrew name. For example, if your name is “Adam,” you can use the letter א for “a,” ד for “d,” and מ for “m.” You just need to put them together and write אדם for “Adam.” Note that you don’t need to write a vowel when it is placed between consonants.

Here are some English names in the Hebrew alphabet.

  • Noah (נח)
  • Jacob (יעקב)
  • Michael (מיכאל)
  • Daniel (דניאל)
  • Sandra (סנדרה)
  • George (ג ‘ורג’)
  • Thomas (תומאס)
  • Kimberly (קימברלי)

If you cannot find your name on this list or want to make your name in Hebrew characters by yourself, here’s our video series for you. Check out Hebrew Alphabet Made Easy and learn how to write the Hebrew characters for your English name.

This will help you learn the Hebrew alphabet and start writing your name in Hebrew by yourself!
