Meaning

Chonia is a masculine Hebrew name that means “God is gracious” or “graceful gift of God”. The name originated from the Hebrew word “chen”, which means grace or favor. In Jewish culture, this name is often associated with individuals who are spiritual or religious and who attribute their success and blessings to God’s grace. According to the Talmud, there was a Jewish sage named Choni HaMe’agel (also known as Honi the Circle Drawer) who was known for his faith and his ability to perform miracles. He was said to have had a special connection with God, and his willingness to speak directly to God earned him the nickname “the mediator”. The name Chonia continues to honor this great Jewish scholar and the faith that he exemplified.
