Meaning

Cochava is a Hebrew name that means “star” as well. This name is the feminine form of Cochav and shares the same cultural significance. According to Jewish tradition, the stars are seen as messengers of truth and hope, and thus, a child named Cochava is believed to bring light to those around her. An interesting story associated with this name is about a famous Jewish folk song called “Hava Nagila”. The song includes the line “Hava nagila ve-nismecha”, which means “let us rejoice and be happy”. However, some believe that the original meaning of the line was actually “Hava ni gila ve-nismecha” which translates to “let us rejoice and be happy in Cochava”, referring to a woman named Cochava who was known for her charismatic personality.
