Name Naphtali backwards (ananym): Ilathpan

Meaning of the name Naphtali

Hebrew (נפתלי) which actually means - "fighter, my struggle".

According to the Book of Genesis, Naphtali - was the second son of Jacob with Bilhah. He was the founder of the Israelite Tribe of Naphtali. However, some Biblical scholars view this as postdiction, an eponymous metaphor providing an aetiology of the connectedness of the tribe to others in the Israelite confederation.

According to Genesis 46:24, Naphtali had four sons: Jahzeel, Guni, Jezer, and Shillem. He and his family migrated to Egypt, with the rest of the clan where they remained until the Exodus.
