Biblical Baby Names
Still, in recent years, a number of parents have been turning away from
Biblical names. They may be more interested in how a name sounds, or whether
it evokes a pleasant feeling or memory.
A Return to Faith
However, in some corners of America, young adults-particularly young parents-are returning to religious faith. As a result, this has awakened interest in names with Biblical meaning.
Also, chances are good that a child who has a baby biblical name will grow into an adult who also chooses a babay name from the bible for his or her children.
The Name Game
Still, once you know the meaning of a Biblical name, it can remain difficult to find the right one. For instance, if you believe your child will demonstrate the strength of God, you might name him the biblical baby boy name Ezekiel; if you think God is his strength, you might consider naming him Gabriel. Will your little girl show the grace of God that is Hannah, or the grace that is Anne? It can be understandably difficult to predict your child's temperament and personality at birth.
However, some parents seem to have a sixth sense about such things. For whatever reason, one Biblical name appeals to them more than another, and they take this as a sign that they should select the name that they simply cannot get out of their heads.
