    Favorite biblical names?

    Lately, almost all the names I like are from the bible, which I never would have expected since I'm more spiritual than religious. My current favorites are:

    Jesse
    Jonah
    Samuel
    Nathaniel
    Abel
    Simon
    Dinah
    Anna
    Elizabeth

    What are your favorites and why?

    I love Ephraim, and I think that's something to do with a little boy in a book I read; I just fell in love with the name. Gabriel is another favourite, and I also love Bartholomew, partly because there was an actual guy on a show with the name, so I could imagine it more on a person. Gideon, Noah, Benjamin, Timothy, and Silas are some other favourites for boys. For girls, I like Tabitha, Talitha, Elizabeth, and Magdalene. I tend to almost forget they're biblical names altogether, because they give off so many vintage/classics vibes.

    I looooove Talitha! It was my great grandma's name and was passed to my cousin. She goes by Ty but there are so many nicknames!

    Dara is my favorite and it happens to be my daughter's name!

    Have always liked Zepiniah Ezikiel!
