Meaning of the name Jude

According to BabyCenter, Jude is a name of Hebrew origin, meaning “praise” or “praised.”

It can be used as both a boy’s name and a girl’s name, although it’s more commonly given to boys. 

The name Jude is number 162 on the popularity list for boy names for 2021, moving down 26 spaces since 2020.

It’s a good option for parents wishing to use a more gender-neutral name for their child. It was also made popular by the famous song by the Beatles, Hey, Jude.

Some famous Judes are actor (David) Jude Heyworth Law and soccer player Jude Victor William Bellingham.
