Best names for your child

The search for biblical bible names over the internet is not a new thing. As soon parents come to know about the arrival of the new baby, they start searching for best names. The very thought of a new person entering into your life is exciting. Having a child is always a thing of joy to everyone. However, there are several things to be arranged for the arrival of the most precious member of your family. You need to prepare a special room, purchase baby clothes, diapers and other required stuff. You need to enquire about the food to give the child. However, preparing a list of best names for your child is the most important task on hand. There are several websites on the internet which offer you with good information on biblical baby names and their meanings.

During the early days, children were considered as the wealth of a person, especially a woman. However, with changing environmental conditions and hectic life schedules, having a child is a blessing too. When you look at people without children, you understand how blessed it is to have a child. You need to praise God for these wonderful moments of having a child. Giving good biblical baby names to your child is one way of remembering The Shema given by the Lord. In Deuteronomy, Chapter 6 and verses 4-9, God asked Israel to remember His commandments and meditate on them every day. God asks people to teach His word to their children so that the newer generations would remember how mightily God has brought their forefathers from the bondage of Egypt. Though giving biblical baby names to your children does not guarantee that your children will follow the footsteps of the faithful people mentioned in the Bible, it gives your family a chance to remember faithful warriors mentioned in the Bible.

Importance of Biblical baby names

For instance, Daniel is a very common name, right from the early centuries. Even today, you find thousands of people with this name. Giving biblical baby names like Daniel to your children would at least create an interest in them to know what the meaning of their name. When they read the portion of Daniel from the Bible, chances are good that they can be encouraged to stand for the Lord. Daniel was a great lion who stood firm for the Lord. Because of one person the entire nation came trembling to the feet of the Lord. The name Daniel challenges people to stand for the Lord. If one person stands for the Lord without compromising with circumstances around him, God can do mighty things through that person. That is why it is good to give biblical bible names to your children.

      Enjoyed your hub topic and the reasons for using Biblical names. I think a name deserves some consideration and using a hero's Biblical name reminds us of the character. This can only be a good thing!

      Yes, I agree with you. A name doesn't make any difference. However, having a biblical name reminds us about the heroes of faith. That is something good.

      To me it isn't important if a name is biblical or not. One of my two children has a biblical name, just because I happen to like the name.
