Meaning

Avishay is a Hebrew name that means “my father’s gift”. It is derived from two words, “avi” which means father and “shai” which means gift or present. According to Jewish tradition, a child is a gift from God and parents view their children as a precious blessing. In fact, in some Jewish families, the naming ceremony is accompanied by a special blessing that thanks God for the gift of the child and asks for long life, good health, and success for the child to grow up and fulfill his or her potential. Avishay is not just a name, but a reminder of the profound love and gratitude that parents feel towards their children.
