Christian Baby Names

The Christian baby names on this list are names that have significance in Christian religions, rather than Christian names as a synomym for first names. Many Christian baby names come from the Bible, particularly the New Testament stories related to Jesus Christ. Other names with meaning in Christian religions relate to saints or figures central to Christianity such as Martin Luther.
