30 Passover Inspired Baby Names
We are halfway through the Passover week already! This Jewish spring festival is a seven-day holiday that runs from March 25th through April 2nd (for 2013). Since Passover is a spring holiday, there are plenty of themes you can use when naming your baby.
You will find that most of these names are Biblically based. I was able to locate boy’s names, girl’s names and several gender neutral options (shown in green). If your baby is born during the week of Passover or shortly before/after, you may want to check this list. You’ll find names taken from the Bible and Passover story as well as Hebrew names for “spring”.
