Meaning

Boaz is a Hebrew name that means “swift” or “strong”. In Jewish culture, Boaz is best remembered as the name of one of King David’s ancestors, who is mentioned in the Book of Ruth in the Torah. Boaz was a wealthy landowner who showed kindness and generosity to Ruth, a poor widow who came to glean in his fields. He ultimately married Ruth and became the great-grandfather of King David. Today, the name Boaz is often given to baby boys in Jewish families as a tribute to this noble and honorable ancestor.
