The Hebrew variation of the Egyptian name Moses, meaning "saved from the water." But if your little Moshe is anything like most boys, the water will want to be saved from his stomping and splashing.

Israeli Ministers of Defense Moshe Dayan and Moshe Ya'alon; former Israeli President Moshe Katsav; former Israeli Prime Minister Moshe Sharett.

Fun fact:

There is a character in Elie Wiesel's book Night named Moshe the Beadle.
