I know some cultures don’t use middle names, and I was thinking about having my Hebrew name as Hadassah, with Raphaela as the middle name. Is it common for Jewish names to include middle names?
I’ve always liked reading the book of Esther, and Hadassah was her Jewish name. My father just recently gave me that as my Jewish name.
Raphaela means “God has healed”, or something like that. I’ve had a rough time psychologically due to depression. About a year and a half ago, I was healed of most of the depression. I’ve also been told by several people and God that I’m being called to be a healer. So the name is significant.
I was also thinking of having “Asa” as a nickname. It’s sort of a sortened form of Hadassah, but it also has something to do wth healer.
Hadassah also mean “myrtle tree”.
