Why Would You Pick a Hebrew Name? ✡ "Jeremiah Son of Hilkiah"

The words of Jeremiah son of Hilkiah, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin.

JEREMIAH (1:1)

דִּבְרֵי יִרְמְיָהוּ בֶּן חִלְקִיָּהוּ מִן הַכֹּהֲנִים אֲשֶׁר בַּעֲנָתוֹת בְּאֶרֶץ בִּנְיָמִן

ירמיהו א:א

div-ray yir-m'-ya-hu ben khil-kee-ya-hu min ha-ko-ha-neem a-sher ba-a-na-tot b'-e-retz bin-ya-min

Jerusalem Inspiration

In today's verse we are introduced to the prophet Jeremiah as the son of Hilkiah, from the priests of Anatot.  We know that there are no extraneous words in the holy Bible, so this introduction has significance!  Tradition tells us that when a person is presented as his father's son, this specifically lends importance to his direct lineage.  Hilikiah, it is taught, was a great prophet himself, and it would only be fitting to introduce Jeremiah while giving recognition to his prophet father.

Why Make a Hebrew Name Change?

When moving to Israel, choosing a Hebrew name can represent both Biblical as well as nationalistic motivations.
