Abigail
Abigail  
Hi, I have attached an image to my question. It's a translation of the name Abigail into the Hebrew script. I just wanted to check with an expert as to whether it is a correct translation? Please let me know.

Thanks and have a nice day!

Tina

Answer
Hi,
Yes, this is correct. It is the Hebrew origin of your name. As you can see, in Hebrew it is pronounced a little differently - Avigayil.
You can also use another version, without the Niqqud vowels - simply אביגיל. It's only a matter of your preference, both are equally correct.
