Israel Name Meaning

Israel comes from the Bible. In the story in which this name is mentioned, Jacob wrestles a man that he doesn’t know. They wrestle all night. In the morning, the stranger asks Jacob to finish the wrestle but Jacob says that he will only finish the fight if the man agrees to bless him. Then the stranger, who is god himself, responds: “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.” God changes Jacob's name to Israel. Jews believe that god gave Jacob this blessing because he proved his power, courage, and resilience.

Israel has been present in the U.S. popularity charts since the very beginning of these charts. Israel is generally viewed as a Jewish name but it is not the whole truth because many non-Jewish families choose this name for their sons. The most likely scenario is that Puritans brought this name to America. That is why it has a much larger audience than just the Jewish families.  Interestingly, the driving forces behind the popularity of this name in the United States are the Hispanic and Latin families. Accordingly, the name experiences its most popularity in New Mexico which has the highest density of Latinos. Israel is not yet a top 200 name in the U.S. but it is showing a slow uptrend.
