Absolutely, I would give my child a Biblical name as I'm a Christian--the meaning, the story, and the connection are all a tie that I appreciate.
I wouldn't give my child a name from an unrelated religion though, not unless I felt a deep connection to it and really understood what I was using. And even then....I don't know.
Most common Biblical names have lost their sole connection to the Bible because of centuries of use, which is to be expected. I might be surprised at some more uncommon Biblical names being used by non-Christians/Jews. Noah has become super popular but Moses?Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve

Yes. We're Eastern Orthodox Christians and have an incredibly rich tapestry of history and language to draw from... Byzantium, Suriya Al-Kabir, the Slavs, the whitewashed monasteries in the Greek islands, the mosaics, the icons, incense, brocaded vestments, romanesque churches, two thousand years of namesakes... It is very important to me to conjure all of this up in my children's names.Blade, MD

I wouldn't deliberately use a religious name, but I'd consider names from the bible. For example, Peter is currently a favourite, not because of its religious connotations, but just because I like the name! However, I wouldn't choose a name that's super religious and very connected to the bible.First baby due on September 7, 2015!
