Etymology & Historical Origin - Noe
Noé is the French, Spanish and Portuguese form of Noah. The origin of the name Noah is not certain. Some say the name is derived from the Hebrew “noach” meaning “rest” or “comfort.” This is supported in the Bible (Genesis 5:29) when he is called Noah by his father saying "this one shall bring us relief from our work and from the painful toil of our hands." Obviously, Noah was a significant and central character in the Old Testament, and according to the story, all people are descended from Noah’s children. The story of Noah and the Ark is one of the most well known of all Biblical stories. Frustrated with the state of affairs on earth, God sent the Great Flood to cleanse the evilness but spared Noah and his family because he was a righteous man. The name Noah was widely adopted as a given name most notably by the Puritans in the 1600's. Noé is a top favorite for boys in France just as Noah is popular in English speaking nations today. Noé is also used among Spanish-speakers in the United States and elsewhere.
Popularity of the Name Noe
The name Noé first appeared on the American male naming charts in 1942, most certainly fueled by Spanish-speaking Americans. This charming Spanish/French boy’s name has slowly climbed the charts right along with the growing Hispanic-American population in the United States. Today the name appears to be experiencing a slow down and possible reversal in usage as second and third generation Hispanic Americans are opting for more anglicized versions of traditional names. Noé reminds us of Moises, a lovely Biblical name translated into the Spanish language. It’s unique yet ancient. Dignified yet charming. Modern with classic appeal. Noé has a certain cosmopolitan coolness that exceeds the more commonly used Noah.

Noé (The Bible) - Clearly, the most notable and recognized Noé (Noah) is from the Biblical book of Genesis (Chapters 6–9). Noah saves his family and all animals in groups of two from the flood. While the great flood and Noah's Ark are the best-known elements of the Noah tradition, Noah is also mentioned in Genesis as the "first husbandman" and possibly the inventor of wine. This story has been immensely influential in Western culture. Noah was the son of Lamech who named him Noah because he would bring rest from toil on the land which God had cursed (a reference to the curse God placed on the earth following the expulsion from Eden). In his five hundredth year Noah had three sons. When Noah was six hundred years old, God, saddened at the wickedness of mankind, decided to send a great deluge to destroy all life. But he saw that Noah was a righteous man, and instructed him to build an ark and gather himself and his family with every type of animal, male and female. "Be fruitful and multiply, bring forth abundantly on the earth and multiply in it." And as a sign of his covenant, he set the rainbow in the sky.
