Mattan in Wikipedia Mattan or Matthan (Hebrew: מַתָּן‎, today written mostly Matan) is a Hebrew name, mostly for boys, coming from the word 'gift' and literally means "giving". It is part of the title of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot that is also known as "Z'man Mattan Torah" meaning the "time [of the] giving [of the] Torah." A Biblical reference for a Mattan as a given name is the story told in Books of Kings about the Baal priest Mattan, killed by the people of the Kingdom of Judah. In the Gospel of Matthew, Matthan is the paternal grandfather of Joseph, father of Jesus. According to September 2005 there were 2683 citizens in Israel with the name Mattan, with only 183 of them are females. Other popular given names are Mattanel and Mattaniah or Mattaniahu, all meaning "Gift of God".
