Thread: Favorite biblical names?

Biblical names are some of my favourite names!
Hezekiah- this is one of my favourite names. It's a fantastic Bible story about King Hezekiah and you can still visit the Hezekiah's Tunnel in Jerusalem today. I'd love to go some day, the picture's are pretty amazing. And I also love the meaning of Hezekiah, which is "God gives strength". My DH really wanted Hezekiah as a first name (with the nickname Ezzie), but I insisted on a middle; I don't know how my in laws would handle it otherwise!
Elisha- great name, I recently bumped it out of my top boy's names because I was worried about people mistaking it for a girl's name. I love Elisha, it's so smooth, yet strong. I definitely prefer Elisha to Elijah. And Elisha is a great Bible story too.
Abel- this is my favourite off your list, and it's a new favourite for me. I'm definitely considering this as a middle for a new boy set.
Job- love this name. Unfortunately, it looks like "job" and my name is Jo, so it's a no go for me. The story of Job is amazing and just inspiring. And I love the sound of Job.
Okay, I'm going to rush through the rest otherwise I'm going to be here all night. But my reasons behind loving the names are easy- they are remarkable stories and are names that feel strong and kind to me. I hope that makes sense

I like a lot of biblical names. Personally, since I am a Christian and am very familiar with the Bible, the story is important to me. There are some names I like more because of the story, and some names that I would never use because, even if they're nice, the back story isn't pleasant (e.g., Delilah).
Some of my favourites
Noemi (variant of Naomi)
Marcus (in English Bible's it's Mark, but Marcus is a legit variant)
Names with * are ones in which the meaning/story makes the name more meaningful to me. Sarah and Hannah are especially meaningful as we have struggled with infertility.
i also love Emmanuelle, which is a female variant of Emmanuel.Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Veronica ~ Sarah ~ EstherPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel
Top combos: Miriam Estelle / Paul Augustin

I didnt realize some of those were biblical until I went through a list on BTN.
Bonus: I had a math teacher whose name was Gethsemane. He went by Geth (jet). I always thought it was cool.
