Caleb is a Hebrew name that means “faithful, devotion, whole-hearted” and is pronounced KAY-leb. It originates from the Torah as the name of one of the 12 spies Moses sent to scout out Canaan. Caleb was one of only two spies who zealously recommended that the Israelites should attack and conquer the land of Canaan, which later became Israel. In Jewish culture, Caleb represents strength, courage, and fidelity in one’s beliefs. The name has been popularized in modern times, with famous bearers including actor Caleb Landry Jones and football player Caleb Sturgis.
