I'm jewish, and I saw many misconceptions in the Jwish names list. I don't really know where to post my remarks - so I'll try here. MARGALIT - is not hebrew for Margaret - it means a gemstone in hebrew. ADAM - is the hebrew word for man, but moreover - it's the name of the first man on earth (in the bible). ADI - doesn't mean "my jewel", but simply "a jewel". ADINA - In hebrew it looks like òãéðä ALIYAH- it may mean "ascension", but it really means "immigration to Israel". AVI - also means "my father". And so on... I can go on in this matter...
