Barzilai is a Hebrew name that means “made of iron”. In the Torah, Barzilai was a wealthy Gileadite who helped King David and his army during their exile. He was known for his strength, courage, and generosity, and his name has become synonymous with these qualities in Jewish culture. Parents choose this name, especially in Ashkenazi traditions, with the hope that their son will be as resilient and unbreakable as iron. Barzilai is also considered a rare and powerful name, making it a worthy choice for parents looking for something unique and meaningful.
