Let’s move onto the beautiful Hebrew words.
- Pronounced: laila
This is probably one of the most beautiful Hebrew words. There is even a popular female name that has derived from this word. Can you guess? “Layla” which is also written “Leila” or “Laila.”
- Pronounced: maksim
Here is another Hebrew word that has a very pleasant sound.
Say it out loud. Does it sound like a name? That’s right, it sounds like the popular name, “Maxim.”
- Pronounced: aviv
“אביב” is a short and simple word that is often associated with life, revival, new hope and beauty.
- Pronounced: yofi
The Hebrew word for beauty has a beautiful sounding too.
This word is extremely easy to pronounce for an English speaker.
It consists of sounds that exist in the English language, too.
- Pronounced: ahava
This word both describes one of the most beautiful feelings and has a very gentle and pleasant sound.
- Pronounced: koh’avim
The word “כוכבים” is actually the plural form of the word “כוכב” (koh’av) meaning “a star.”
To pronounce this word correctly you have to practice your “h’ ” sound, which is a harsher and more guttural variant of the English “h” sound. It is quite similar to how “h” sounds in the word “Hotel.”
6. The World
- Pronounced: olam
“עולם” is another short and easy word for you to learn that also sounds pretty nice as bonus.
- Pronounced: opumpiya
Unlike the words above, this one doesn’t stand for some amazing phenomena.
But, it has a rather funny sound. Say it. “Opumpiya!”
It is a great example of the Hebrew language’s uniqueness and peculiarity.
- קשת בענן
- Pronounced: keshet beanan
The Hebrew variant of Rainbow consists of two words that describe the same phenomena.
The first word, “קשת” (keshet), means “an arch” or “a bow.” The other word, “בענן” (beanan), means “in a cloud”, where “ב” is “in” and “ענן” is “a cloud”.
So, a bow in a cloud!
- Pronounced: yahalom
The Hebrew word for diamond is “יהלום”.
It has a very deep and lovely sound. Definitely one of my favorite beautiful Hebrew words.
10. The Sky
- Pronounced: shamaim
The sky is usually associated with something endless and breathtaking but also unsteady and ever-changing. The sound of the Hebrew word for “sky” describes it best with a rather harsh beginning and a very soft and tender ending.
11. Land / Ground / Soil
- Pronounced: adama
In Hebrew, there is one single word that stands for “land”, “ground” and “soil.” Another interesting fact is that the popular male name, “Adam,” is derived from this Hebrew word, because in The Bible it is told that Adam was created from the dust of the earth.
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being (Genesis 2:7)”.
- Pronounced: h’alal
The Hebrew language is very rich of short and catchy words, and this word is not an exception.
“חלל” has a very deep sound that despite its shortness conveys the endlessness and greatness of space.
- Pronounced: tal
This one you can learn in no time!
This word is so short and “quick” that it reminds us of the tiny morning drops, which are called “dew” in English.
14. Hello / Peace
- Pronounced: shalom
“שלום” is one of the most recognizable Hebrew words in the world. You probably already know it.
You can use it as a greeting when you say Hello. It also means “peace,” which is very important and desired to people in Israel.
- Pronounced: pilpel
The Hebrew word for pepper is a very catchy word that sounds great, too.
16. Longing / Nostalgia
- Pronounced: ga’agua
This word describes the state when someone is longing for someone or something.
“געגוע” has a rather pleasant and ‘circular’ sounding.
17. The Sun
- Pronounced: shemesh
When people think of the Sun they usually associate it with warmness, life and joy.
This is a very beautiful and easy Hebrew word to learn.
- Pronounced: arye
“אריה” sounds really powerful and strong, which is definitely correlated with the animal itself
It also is similar to the lion’s roar in a way.
- Pronounced: paamaim
“פעמיים” is actually the Hebrew word for “Twice.”
This word might not possess any special meaning, but it still sounds really good.
- Pronounced: yam
This one is another beautiful word in the Hebrew language.
It sounds both calm and simple and it also stands for something really magnificent.
Sky in English is a beautiful word, isn’t it? With everything it means and represents, it also makes the beautiful Hebrew words list.
