Choosing a baby name from the Bible

Study the scripture to learn more about the baby name that strikes your fancy. You may find additional inspiration from the stories surrounding the name you love. A meaningful baby name is a blessing for a child who may ask you about the story behind his or her name later in life.

If you’re not interested in the origin as much as the sound of the name, that’s OK too. These names are a mixture of very common names, such as Mary, and unique names like Eunice. They all have beautiful origins and sound great with modern middle names from the New Testament and Old Testament.

Consider nicknames

As with any long or classic name, consider nicknames. Matthew is likely to be called Matt. Elizabeth may be Liz, Beth or Betty. Andrew can be Andy or Drew and Susana may be Susie or Sue. If you are strongly against the nickname associated with a longer name, keep in mind that you won’t have much control over what peers, classmates and others call your child. If you love the nicknames, you’re in luck. Names with great nicknames give kids lots of options as they mature and settle into a name and professional identity.
