Biblical Baby Names

Biblical baby names have been in style since the 1960s, when parents started to revive such boy names from the bible as Samuel and Joshua. Over the decades, biblical names for both boys and girls have become popular. Witness Noah and Jacob, both Number 1 boy names, along with Ethan, Rebecca, Rachel, and Abigail. Biblical prophet names like Abraham and Moses, long thought too antiquated for babies, have been resurrected, as parents look deeper and deeper into the Bible in search of more unique bible names. Here is the full compliment of biblical baby names, both popular and unique, in use today.
