Controversial religious question
I was talking to my parents about names for the baby I am expecting.
When I mentioned Isaac my dad said "That's a Jewish name".
Honestly, I don't even know anyone who is Jewish so it certainly never occurred to me that it might be perceived as from a particular religion. Mum corrected him and said "It's Old Testament not necessarily Jewish. Lot's of Old Testament names are popular these days."
If a child was called Isaac would people assume they were Jewish?
If that is the case, does that mean I shouldn't use it if we're not Jewish?
I just liked the sound of it, so this whole religious debate from my parents has confused me.
It is not my intention to be disrespectful or rude.
