Isaac is a boy's name of Hebrew origin, derived from "Yitzvah," which means "one who laughs or rejoices". The name has its roots in the Hebrew name יִצְחָק (Yitzchaq), and it is associated with the biblical patriarch Isaac, the only son of Abraham and Sarah. In the Old Testament, God tested Abraham's faith by ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, but an angel prevented the act at the last moment. Isaac later became the father of Esau and Jacob with his wife Rebecca. The name Isaac is popular among followers of the Jewish faith and has been used occasionally in English Christian traditions since the Middle Ages, becoming more widespread after the Protestant Reformation. Some famous people named Isaac include Isaac Asimov, an author and inventor, and Sir Isaac Newton, a physicist and mathematician.
