    Re: Name help needed, please!

    Salome gave a fantastic reply on the girls' names thread and included some boys names there too. From that list, there are some lovely names but most of the ones they like are already used by family members :( Apart from that, they like Luke (perhaps Lucas?) and Zach from the list (though they're not sure about a full name for Zach yet).

    - A full name for Zach is Zachary.

    A family name is John, which has great significance on both sides of the family. Oliver John? Arthur John? Lucas John? Nathaniel John sounds a little off-beat, imo.

    Love John. And Oliver. And Nathaniel.



    - I love all of your names, especially Rachel!

    Some of my other favorite biblical names are:

    Girls
    Abigail
    Anna
    Chloe - I think it's in the New Testament.
    Evelyn - has Eve in it.
    Joanna
    Julia - I think Julia is in Acts.
    Lillian - this is a stretch, but Susannah means lily, and Susannah is in the New Testament.
    Lydia
    forms of Mary - Marian, Mariel, Marin
    Phoebe
    Rebecca
    Ruth - especially love it as a middle name.
    Susannah
    Tabitha

    Girls' names that have biblical imagery or themes:
    Any angel names - I love Angelina the most. Also Angelica.
    Alice - means truth
    Anastasia - means resurrection
    Bianca - means white
    Celeste - means heavenly
    Faith, Fay, Faye
    Grace
    Helen/Helena, Elaine, Eleanor, Eleni - means light
    Journey - I would like this as a middle name.
    Lucy means light
    Paloma - means dove
    Sophia - means wisdom, I think Sophia is in the New Testament as well.
    Stella - means star, so pretty!
    True - love this as a middle name.
    Verity
    Veronica - means true image
    Zoe - means life

    Some feminine forms of masculine biblical names:
    Andrea
    Gabriella
    Jacqueline
    Josephine
    Pauline
    Petra
    Raphaela
    Tamsin

    Boys - there are many more biblical choices for boys than there are for girls. I will just put down my favorites:
    Barnaby - a form of Barnabus.
    Benjamin
    Bram
    Cornelius
    Daniel
    Elijah
    Gabriel nn Gabe - this is one of my favorite boys' names lately.
    Isaac
    Isaiah
    Jacob, but it's too popular.
    James
    John nn Jack, forms of John are so much fun: Owen, Ewan, Ian, etc. Just look up John on check out a name and scroll down to find International Variations of John. I think Owen is my favorite form of John. Owen goes really well with many last names.
    Jonah
    Lazarus
    Moses
    Nathaniel nn Nathan
    Noah
    Peter
    Philip
    Samuel
    Thomas
    Tobias - I think this is in the bible, but I'm not sure.

    My favorite boys' saints' names:
    Adrian
    Bernard
    Bruno
    Cormac
    Declan
    Finnian
    Julian
    Julius
    Leo
    Oliver
    Nicholas
    Roger
    Sebastian
    Vincent
    Xavier

    Boys' names with biblical themes:
    Cruz - means cross
    Justus - means Justice
    Theodore - this is probably a saints' name. Means gift of God.
    I can't think of any more.
