    Would you name your child something religious?

    I know a Christian who never goes to church, but a Faith whose parents are there every Sunday. Cohen is a popular name on nameberry, and I know some people find it offensive. How do you feel about names like these? Would you use them?
    Mia, Lydia, Cora
    Corbin, Rocco, Quinn

    Let's not re-open the Cohen debate AGAIN, please.

    I wouldn't give my kids a religious name because, well, I'm an atheist. They'll be free to choose whatever beliefs suit them best. I would give them names that represent neutral values or figures I admire from literature and history.
    Simon, Eloise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Marina, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Ruby Louise, Archer, Violet, Gabriel, Persephone, Dov, Louisa

    Just a grad student, dreaming ahead...

    That being said, would you name him say, Christian, just being you like that sound even though you don't support the religion?

    Then again, I'm religious.

    DH is somewhat religious, he goes to church once every few moths but firmly believes in God. I, on the hand, am not very religious at all, more agnostic than anything. However almost every name I like has a biblical connection. It doesn't bother me at all. A name is a name, I don't care where it came from.
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire
