I definitely like Simon. Simeon reminds me of Gideon and I dislike that name as well, so, Simon wins. I always resonated Simon as a biblical name, but I haven't researched the name, so I'm sure there are other Simon factoid I've yet to learn. Many names have more than one origin, or the meaning of the name varies from one ethnic background to another.

Simon Peter was one of Jesus Christ's apostles. He is featured prominently in the New Testament Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles and is venerated as a saint and the first Pope by the Catholic Church. If that's not a Bible name I don't know what is.
I used to like Simeon when I was a teenager until someone pointed out that it was too similar to the word "simian" or ape-like. I used to play "Simon Says" as a child. Simon Cowell is my association nowadays (not a fave).All the best,
