"Light" Names for Hanukkah

Image Credit
Happy Hanukkah to all my friends and readers who are celebrating! Light is a very important theme and symbol of the holiday, so I thought we'd take a look at names that mean light today. It's a fun connection to have if your baby is born during these eight days of celebration. Names that are bolded also have Hebrew origins, for an extra Hanukkah link.

  1. There's Clara, too! Love Beacon for a boy. Excellent idea!

    1. Yes, Clara would work as well. I decided not to put her on this list because I typically consider her to mean "clear"
