Haifa Gem: (hi-fah ) i was recently looking through some of my printouts of baby names and found the first name. i had also heard it on a British T.V show called Pop Idol and thought it would be nice for all ages. i was also contemplating the spelling of Hyfah but thought that the original spelling (Arabic i believe) was nicer. you really need a short feminine middle name though. Gem is a unique version of Gemma that i think is a better form of that name!

In Arabic, Haifa or Hayfa means "slender." Haifa is also the name of the largest city in Northern Israel.
