Nahara is a Hebrew name meaning “light” or “radiance”. In Jewish culture, light symbolizes wisdom, understanding, and enlightenment. In the Torah, God created light on the first day as a symbol of his power, and it is said that the righteous will shine like stars. The name Nahara has an interesting history, as it was popularized in the early 20th century by Jewish immigrants to the United States. In fact, one of the first recorded uses of the name Nahara was for a baby born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1901. Today, Nahara is a relatively uncommon name, but it carries with it a sense of hope and optimism.
