The name is of Hebrew origin. The Hebrew letters כלב is identical to the letters of the word celev meaning "dog". So is often assumed that this is the meaning of the name. Another possibility is the meaning of "loyal, full of devotion, of / with all my heart, bold". Caleb is a compound word from Col (כל, Caf + Lamed) = "all" or "all"; Lev (לב, Lamed + Bet) = "Heart", literally so "wholeheartedly", possibly a reference to the biblical Caleb. It is a name Bible, brought in ' Old Testament from Caleb , one of the twelve men sent by Moses to explore the land of Canaan; he and Joshua were the only Israelites out from ' Egypt who lived to enter the promised land (Nu 14:38 ). English began to be used after the Protestant Reformation , becoming common among the Puritans, who introduced it in America in the seventeenth century. In Italian, however, where there is also the "Calebo" adaptation, the name enjoys very low diffusion. It should be noted that the Hebrew form כָּלֵב ( Kalev ) also corresponds to the variation of the Estonian name Finnish Kaleva. Versions in other languages ​​are Hebrew : כָּלֵב ( Kalev, Kalebh), Biblical Greek : Χαλεβ ( Chaleb ), Latin Bible: Chaleb, Caleb. Popularity of Caleb
