    If you look in the Bible you will find a part in Genesis

    where Jacob wrestled all night with an angel.

    There it says that Israel means one who wrestled

    with God.

    Israel (ישראל) means exactly what it is in English - the name of the country. Although this is also a given name from the bible.

    Source(s): I can speak fluent Hebrew.

    יִשְרָאֵל‎ ("Yisra'el")

    The modern country was named "Medinat Yisrael", or 'the State of Israel'.
