User comments for Enoch (Meaning / History Only)

Its original Hebrew form is Hanoch (khah-nokh).

From Hanoch (or Chanoch), which was then mispronounced in Latin as Enoch. It comes from the Hebrew stem Hanach (or Chanach) which means 'initiated' or 'educated'. Hanoch in Hebrew means initiate (more in modern Hebrew), or educate.

Enoch, the son of Cain, had a city named after him (built by Cain). Enoch, the son of Jared, was the great-grandfather of Noah.

The name Enoch (or "Hanoch", more accurately) is derived from the Hebrew word chinuch, or learning, enlightenment, insight. Thus, Enoch would be "wise teacher."
