Hebrew is the only successful example of a revived dead language in the world. That's a big deal: the language almost disappeared before finding itself spoken again in the modern age. Now, it is spoken mostly in Israel and the United States, which means you're definitely going to run into people with Hebrew names!

Time and again, we've talked about the importance of names and their relevance to our identity.

For Hebrew names, there is a deep connection to a heritage and a culture. Jewish names are often chosen as a remembrance for a recently departed relative, and the Jewish identity is a strong, cultural bond that many people feel a connection to.In our modern times, with globalization bringing us all over the globe, it's more important than ever to realize that connection and to respect it. Gal Gadot, an internationally recognized actress, still finds her name mispronounced on talk shows and interviews.
