Gender: M Meaning of Esau: "hairy" Origin of Esau: Hebrew

Esau is one of the neglected E-beginning boys' biblical choices--it's been off the popularity lists since 1902! The name of Jacob's twin brother, son of Isaac and Rebecca, Esau could make an ideal twin choice, if you don't mind it meaning.

There's a Grateful Dead song "My Brother Esau." Kids might be familiar with the jingle "I saw Esau on the see-saw."
