naomi F

hebrew
NO‛ŎMı̂Y > NA'OMIY

This name derives from the Hebrew "No‛ŏmı̂y > Na'omiy", meaning "beautiful, pleasant, delightful". In Judaism and Christianity, Naomi "pleasant, agreeable, my sweet", is Ruth's mother-in-law in the Old Testament Book of Ruth. The Hebrew name Naomi is not related to the Japanese name Naomi. Yitzhak Berger (Head of Hebrew Division, Department of Classical and Oriental Studies, Hunter College), suggests that Naomi's plan was that Ruth seduce Boaz, just as Tamar and the daughters of Lot all seduced "an older family member in order to become the mother of his offspring."
