101 Most Popular Jewish Boys Names in Israel in 2015

Last year I published the 101 most popular boys names in Israel for 2014, and now that there is data for 2015 I wanted to post the updated list. For this list I’ve included both the 2015 and 2014 rankings, so you can see how the ranking of the name has changed. For girls names see 101 Most Popular Jewish Girls Names in Israel in 2015.

The names that left the list this are Avishai, Yedidya, Tom, Elad, Ovadia, and Ilay. The new names are Elroi, Bnaya, Orel, Maayan, Yehoshua, and Imri.

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.
