Below is a list of Hebrew animal names, WHAT they mean and WHY they mean.
Linguistics, even etymology, like any science is limited to mere WHATS, not the WHYS.

Edenics is the new science of HEBREW WHYS, of EMeTology (true, pre-Babel-babble, meanings).
Everything is intuitive; no academic gobbledegook. Our website is
All is explained in our video

Briefly:[The Menorah/color code  of 7 interchangeable Edenics letter-groups : throat-made (brown), tooth-made (blue),
whistling  letters (orange), nose-made  (green),  tongue-made  (pink),  lip-made  (red); vowels stay black]  Metathesis is a scramble of the root consonants of the Biblical Hebrew/Aramaic or EDENIC. Nasalization is an added M or N to the Edenic root.
[Bracketed word in Upper Case] is the entry name in our 2000-page E-Word Digital Edenics Dictionary, where you will find designed Hebrew similar and opposite words, non-borrowed global cognates, Biblical citations, and more. Hebrew transliterated, color-coded.

The hidden Hebrew meanings of English animal names are in E-Word and a chapter of The Origin of Speeches (Amazon/Lightcatcher) .

איל  AYiL  (stag, hart, ram),  איל  AYahL (might, power; root of the Aleph-Lamd deity name)

   אתוןATOAN (she-donkey),  איתן  AYTaN (steady endurance, strength)  [TONE]

  אריהARYeH (lion),    רוע   ROO’[A]h (Resh-Vav-Ayin,  to shout, blast war cry…
        Lion = roaring creature)  [ARYAN]

     or  [A]MahL   עמל  (Ayin-Mem-Lamed)   = work [MEGALOMANIAC]

דבורה  D'BHOARaH (bee) DaBHaR means communication.  Not the superficial nonsense
          about buzzing bees sounding like speech, but the bee is the only animal able to
         communicate the exact location of a food source by its complex geometric dance. It is
         another proof that the Creator of Hebrew is the Creator: like naming the ear "the
         balancer")   ( אזן millennia before we'd discover the ear to be an organ of balance.

  דגDaG (fish) : 1)   דגה   DaGaH is to multiply (like fish… Gen. 48:16) ;  דגר  DaGaR (to hatch) . 2) A freshwater trout can flutter in place in a stream, like a  דגל  DeGeL (flag, banner) in a breeze.  3) At sea they will live in a large school, “troop” or  גדוד     GiDOOD ( like the  גדי  GiDeeY goat in a herd).  4)  Their unique design is  דק   DahQ    (thin… even חד K[H]ahD, sharp as a DAGGER…. More on this aerodynamically streamlined creature at the E-Word entry entry:  [HADDOCK]

(This entry begins attempted translation to Hebrew. Need help from bilingual Israeli.)
דגים,      1)  שם  הדג   כנראה  מקשר לדגה, לפריון נוראת  של
 כמו שכתוב "וידגו לרב"  ב בראשית  48:16    
   דגר היא הפועל של דגים שנולדים.
2) דגי נהר יכולים לפרפר במקום בזרםמים , כמו דגל  שרפרף ברוח.
 3) בים הם ביחיו בקבוצה גדולה, בגדוד  (כמו  הגדיים  בעדר).
4) היצור אווירודינמית  של  דגים   היא רזה  ...  דק  ... אפילו חד  ... חד כפגיון לדק.

   זאבZ’EBH (wolf),      זבהZaBHaH, seeper, “the salivator” (the overactive salivation  of all
       canines is not the “hungry wolf” but  is really sweat)  [SEEP]
 זבוב    Z’BHOOBH (fly):   סבוב  $iBHOOBH (circle), שב  SHahBH  (return).
      Shoo the fly away, and it circles  and returns.  [SWIVEL]

חזיר  [K]HaZeeYR (pig) will חזר   [K]HoaZeR (return) to food  it had already eaten and
      expelled  [The pig’s rodent-like coprophagy is normal and healthy for animals, but NOT for
      those who eat them.] This plump animal is all  חזה [K]HaZeH (chest). [HYOSCYAMINE]

 ינשוף     YahNSHOOF (owl)  is the  ינה   YaNaH (destroyer) or יונה YOANaH (pigeon-sized
        bird) of the  נשף   NeSHeF (twilight) -- when the owl prowls. [PIG]

 יעל Yah’[A]iL (antelope, wild goat, ibex) is nature’s  expert  climber -- יעל  Yah’[A]hL .

יתוש  Y’TOOSH (mosquito)  is nature’s small dart or  טש DTahSH ( to fly, dart). [DASH]

כבש KeBHeS (lamb, young sheep) is famously gentle and passive, as if   כבש KaBHahSH,
        subdued, vanquished, imprisoned. [QUENCH]

נחש   Na[K]HaSH, snake, is all about  נחוש Ni[K]HooSH, divination, because this creature
         with limited sight and smell has to hunt by heat-seeking, using GUESS, by חוש
         [K]HOOSH instinct.  [HUNCH]. With uncanny ease the letters spelling this animal can
         slither to זנק  ZeeNaiQ  (to spring upon),נשך  NaSHahKH (to bite)  or  שנק SHeeNaiQ
         (to strangle).  [SNAKE]

    נמלNaMaL (ant) ,  נמל  NaMaL (porter…carrying creature, like a row of stevedores

         Not in Tanach but attested in Syriac and Arabic).   [MAR]

נשר     NeSHeR (eagle) :  1)  נשר  NaSHahR is to fall off, drop (Biblical Aramaic).   A liquid
       shift away is      נשל NaSHaL (drop). The eagle is nature’s prolific plummeter from great
       heights and at great speed. 2)  נצר  NaTSaR is to watch or guard.  The eagle-eyed animal
       with storied vision is only a fricative shift from the נשר  NeSHeR  (eagle).

סוס  $OOS (horse),    סס $ah$, joy +   זוז ZOOZ, movement.
    No other animal runs for the sheer joy of  movement [HORSE]

עטלף   GHaDTaLePH The bat is “wrapped in a mantle”  or prayer shawl ( טלית  DTaLeeYT)  
        22 hours a day.  In עטלף   GHaDTaLePH  (Leviticus  11:19),  the  bat’s first, ע-ט
        Ayin-Tet element,  is עטה  GHaDTaH, clothed or cloaked (Psalms 104:2) --
        covered at  the “COAT” entry.
        The 2nd, ל-ף  Lamed-Phey element of  the   עטלף GHaDTaLePH, bat, 
         is from   לפף  LaPHaPH, to wrap, swaddle. [WRAP].
   The vulture, עיט  GHaYiDT,  is not tightly “wrapped” like the bat, but, when
            walking, his “coat,” cloak or mantle (of wings) appears to be wrapped
            around its shoulders.

עזניה   [A]ZNeeYaH (hawks, ospreys, long-spanned raptors),   איזון EYZOON

  עכבר AKHBaR (mouse). 2 elements:עכל      [A]KHaL or אכל OKHeL (consume)

  עקרב[A]QRaBH (scorpion, crustacean),   קרב QRaBH (engagement, battle,
      cantankerous creatures like the  armored  helmet crab) . Under the crustacean’s armor
      is its exposed  קרב QeReBH  (innards). CRABs will approach,  קרב QaReBH, their foe
      with a distinctive, sideways encroachment.  [CRAB]

   פרדPeReD (mule),     פרד   PaReD and   פרטPaReT  means separated, apart

       to pasture); 2.   צןTSauN (to wander, migrate…migratory creatures) [EXIT] ;
      3.    קטן QaDTahN, small       [TINY]

 צב  TSahBH (turtle),    צב TSahBH (covered wagon, Numbers 7:3… the living mobile home
       creature)       [TOP]

        beasts) .  [Affect an M213  metathesis to see BEAUTY and  BEAST]

 צלצל TSLaTSahL, cricket.  Scholars dismiss the name of this musical insect of Deut. 28:42
           as echoic or imitative, or as a variant of Semitic words like צרצורא   TSaRTSOORAh
           which refer to winged and whirring insects  like locusts. Modern Hebrew misnames the
           cricket   צרצור TSaRTSOOR.   The Arabic sharshara is more of a shriek, than the
           softer, more rhythmic, salsa sound of the tingling צלל  SaLaL and the  clanging
            צליל  TSiLeeYL.  The צלצל TSLaTSahLeeYM of II Samuel 6:5 are castanets.

   קוףQOAPH  (monkey),  קוף  QooPH (eye of needle… animal with humanlike head
         and neck or  גוף GooPH, body) [APE].  Also,  קפץ  QaPHaiTS is to leap, and nature has
         no better Tarzan-like acrobat swinging through vines. [APE]

רחל   RaK[H]eL (ewe) is חיל  K[H]eeYaiL, giving strength to her  רך  RahKH (weak,
        tender ) ones. [HEALTH]

שבלול  SHiBLOOL, the snail leaves a שביל  SHBHeeYL  trail  of slime.  A שבל SHoaBHeL 
          is a subtle “flow,” as the train of a robe.  [SPILL]

שחל  SHa[K]HaL (lion;  an SL reverse of  ליש  LaYiSH, lion) slinks low, crawls or
          is זחל  ZoaK[H]aiL in the tall grass to sneak up on prey. [SLINK]

  שחף SHaK[H]ahF (seagull - Leviticus 11:16) is a שקף  SHaQahF, looking-out SCAVENGER
          whose supermarket is likely to be a garbage dump.  [SCAUP, SCOPE, SCAVENGE]

תיש TaYiSH   (he-goat) is טש DTahSH ( to fly, dart  ), is a frenetically active leaper,
         jumper and runner.   [DASH]
תולעה  TOAL[A]yaH caterpillar or silkworm that is תלה TaLaH, suspended by a
         thread.  For Isaiah 41:14, sloppy and/or Jew-hating scholars rendered the phrase “fear not,
         thou worm  (תולעה)  Jacob” without depicting Israel as a tiny insect surviving since the
         Late Bronze Age in a small cocoon that is miraculously hanging by a thread.
