My wifes family has been orthodox Jew up until the previous
generation. No one is left in her family that know Hebrew. We named
our daughter after her great grandmother. We think the name means fore
caster but are not sure. That is really not that important but would
be nice to know. Her name is Niviah, pronounced like the lotion
(Nevea). I am looking for someone to please translate it into Hebrew
so we can see what her name is supose to look like. We know from
talking to her grandfather before he died that Hebrew is a beautiful
language and means much more when it is writen. Also I think it would
make a great tattoo if I ever got one. I only offered $2.25 becaus eit
is all I had in my PayPal account, if you require more and are willing
to give lots of info I am willing to pay up to $10.00.

Hello lferguson,

See Niviah written in Hebrew at the links below
( Hebrew is read from right to left.)

And here:

Niviah means Prophetess.

A female prophet; a woman who foretells future events, as Miriam,
Huldah, Anna, &c. Exo 15. Judg 4. Luke 2.



? a prophetess or (generally) inspired woman; by implication a
poetess; by association a prophet's wife: - prophetess.?


BDB Definition:

1) prophetess
1a) ancient type endowed with gift of song (Miriam)
1b) later type consulted for a word (Huldah)
1c) false prophetess (Noadiah)
1d) wife of Isaiah the prophet
Part of Speech: noun feminine

I thought that is was very nice that you were finding out the
translation of your daughters name. I just thought that you'd be
interested to know that although any tatoo is against Jewish religion,
even more so is writing. I don't know the exact details, but perhaps
ask a rabbi, or that could be your next google question.
