Yiddish Names

Yiddish is a Germanic language of Ashkenazi Jewish origin that is used throughout the world. Yiddish names are similar to Hebrew, but are distinctly unique, and used by Jewish parents, predominantly. Yiddish names had fallen out of favor and had been viewed as dated, but beg for a resurgence we predict will happen in the not too distant future. Our Yiddish names list contains popularity information, pronunciations and accurate origin and meanings data along with historical tidbits and unique pop culture references for each baby name. If you are looking for a traditional Yiddish name for your baby, look no further than our selection of Yiddish baby names.
