Jabez is a boy's name of Hebrew origin. This biblical name refers to a passage in the Hebrew Bible about a mother's relief of finally holding her baby in her arms after a difficult birth. Despite its meaning of “sorrowful” or “borne in pain,” this name is much beloved for showing that while not every path is smooth, beautiful things can come from challenges. In 2000, this name grew in popularity due to Bruce Wilkinson's best-selling book, The Prayer of Jabez.
