I took these pictures in March while we were at the Botanical Gardens. To me, flowers represent life. Chayah is Hebrew meaning life. The complete definition of Chayah is:
to live, have life, remain alive, sustain life, live prosperously, live for ever, be quickened, be alive, be restored to life or health
  1. to live
  2. to have life
  3. to continue in life, remain alive
  4. to sustain life, to live on or upon
  5. to live (prosperously)
    1. to revive, be quickened
  6. from sickness
  7. from discouragement
  8. from faintness
  9. from death
    1. to preserve alive, let live
    2. to give life
    3. to quicken, revive, refresh
  10. to restore to life
  11. to cause to grow
  12. to restore
  13. to revive
    1. to preserve alive, let live
    2. to quicken, revive
  14. to restore (to health)
  15. to revive
  16. to restore to life
I have also found "Chayah", only spelled without the "H" on many baby name sites. See HERE. In 2006, "Chaya" was the 785th most popular baby girl name! It was most popular in, you guessed it, 2002- the year Chayah was born, when it ranked as the 707th most popular name!
