Biblical names?

(28 Posts)

We aren't religious, but my family all have quite biblical but not unusual names (and Old Testament names too. So David, Isaiah, Joshua, Luke etc;) although there are quite a few unusual names in there too.

Ideas? Boy or girl, although there's more boys names out there probably?

Don't see it as tying myself to biblical names - I just chose names I liked. I'm ashamed to admit I didn't even know Seth was a biblical name until after we short listed it - it was a name I remembered from a Stephen king short story that I liked when I was younger. I wouldn't be falling over myself to use another biblical name if we have more kids, but it being in the bible wouldn't put me off (and actually I like a load of the names mentioned on this thread! smile).
