On Hebrew, English, translation, editing, and more—by Jonathan Orr-Stav

What does Nathaniel mean in Hebrew?

Leave a comment

In Hebrew it is Natan’el (the i was inserted in the European version, for easier pronunciation), meaning ‘God has given’.

Incidentally, the name Jonathan (Hebrew, Yonatan) means the same, only with the Judean contraction for the Lord’s name—Jo.
