Do your children (or you) have a Hebrew name as part of them name on their birth certificate? or do they have 2 secular names and use a separate Hebrew name at Synagogue?
What names did you choose?
DH and I have Hebrew names as one of the given names for our boys, but are debating on doing the same if we ever have a daughter since we are stuck with Garnet as a middle name and can't find a Hebrew/Jewish name that we both like as a first name...
It is unusual at our synagogue to have 2 secular names, almost every one has a Hebrew name as either the first or middle name, but I wasn't sure what the tradition/trend is in other parts of the country.
We all have seperate secular and Hebrew names. Mine is not great, Ester Blima! Eli's Hebrew name is Abraham Samuel (although spelled and pronounced in hebrew). My husband's Hebrew name is his secular name, David.
I used the same names just to make it simpler. And I've heard that it's good for the soul to use a person's Hebrew name. I'll have to look up a source on that for you. Here in Mexico it isn't that common to have middle names, so my sons are simply David and Aaron both in Spanish and in Hebrew.
