101 Most Popular Jewish Boys Names in Israel in 2014

[Update: You can now see the 2015 list at 101 Most Popular Jewish Boys Names in Israel in 2015]

Following yesterday’s posting of the 101 Most Popular Jewish Girls Names in Israel in 2014, I here present the most popular boys names. These names are taken from just-released information from the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS). Names have been translated and/or transliterated into English as necessary. In some cases, if the name is used in English in both forms (translated and transliterated), they are both presented in English.

The table below can be sorted by name in either Hebrew or English.
