Salome (disambiguation)

Salome or Salomé is the English version (derived through Greek Σαλωμη) of a name that in Hebrew reads שלומית ("Shlomit") and is derived from "Shalom" שלום, meaning "peace". It is a common female first name in Israel. In Latin and German the name is written without accent ("Salome"). Several other languages like French, Spanish, and Dutch use the version with acute accent on the last letter ("Salomé").
