I'm considering getting a tattoo of my son Adam's name. I've thought about getting it in Hebrew, given the origins of the name, plus I think it is a beautiful script. I hope it's not insensitive given that I know that a lot of Jewish people don't believe in getting tattoos. I was wondering if anyone could clarify what is the more correct spelling of the name.
I have seen both This and This
Thanks for any help

I think they're both correct, but the second one has vowel pointings and the first does not (Hebrew doesn't have vowels in the same sense we do). The one without pointings would be more ancient (dating to the era of the name's origins), if that matters to you.

Sorry, but I don't read hebrew but I would like to know where you got the translations from if possible

they are both correct
as its gonna be a tatt - i would get the one withought the vowel sounds....so the first one
fwiw - most "modern jews" are neither here nor there - its the hard core orthodox who frown upon it

Thanks all. Elmo I'm glad it's not too weird or insensitive. Or ironic, like this.
And thanks, Ange
