Now it's being rediscovered in a major way -- Levi has been shooting up the charts in recent years -- especially after receiving a lot of attention as the sons of Matthew McConaughey, Sheryl Crow and Sara Gilbert.
In the Old Testament, Levi was the third son of Leah and Jacob, from whom the priestly tribe of Levites descended; in the New Testament, Levi was Matthew's given name before he became an apostle. In the Thomas Hardy novel Far from the Madding Crowd, Levi Everdene is the father of the heroine.
