Top 12 Most Popular Biblical Baby Boy Names of 2016 & 2017!

The Bible has long been a source of inspiration for naming your child. There are so many adorable names that come from this book that you can find one that is just right for your little one. The following twelve are some of the top boys names that you will find that were inspired by the word of God.

Abel

The name Abel actually means “breath, vanity” and is one of the first names that was mentioned in The Bible. The name is one that I am surprised is becoming so popular considering the story of Cain and Abel. However I do understand that sometimes people do not read into all of that and use a name that they like because of how it sounds.

Ephraim

Ephraim is a name that I would not have thought would become popular, but it is a name that is quickly gaining some popularity. I like this name and that it sounds strong. The meaning is “very fruitful” which is a great meaning for any name as all parents want their children to be happy and successful in life.

Gideon

I have always thought that the name Gideon was a great one. This is a name that I have been a fan of for a long time. I really think that this name is cute for a little boy and a great name as your little boy grows into a man. The name Gideon means “great warrior.”

Jabin

While we know that the name Jabin comes from The Bible, there is no known meaning for this name. It is a great name for your little boy. It is name that is different and cute. It is a fun name too and one that you are going to appreciate for years to come.

Jethro

If you are looking for a name that means “outstanding and excellent” then Jethro might be the best choice. This name is one that seemed to fade from popularity in many parts of the US but has remained popular in the South. It seems that it is becoming more popular throughout the rest of the country now too.

Meshach

The name Meshach is seen in the great book and is a name that I always thought was fun to say. This is something that I probably would not have thought about using as a name for my own sons but now that it is becoming more popular it is something that I really like.

Reuben

Reuben has been a name that you have seen in God’s word and often seen elsewhere and as well. This is a name that has been used in songs and popular culture for some time and is something that I really like. I had actually tried to talk my husband into this name because of a song that I really like.

Rufus

Rufus means “red, ruddy” and is the type of name that I could see for some little boys. For a long time I did not hear this name very often. It seemed as though it skipped a few generations and now oit is something that I really think is cute. It is one of those old world names that seems to be made into something new.

Samson

In the story of Samson and Delilah, Samson is known for his superior strength. The name Samson means “like the sun” and is something that is really interesting. I think that this is cute and it is a name that your child can grow up and fall in love with. Plus there are a numbr of fun and cute nicknames that you can give your child.

Saul

Saul is a name that means “longed for.” It is a name that should have caught on and been popular long ago. It is cute, has a hint of traditional, and still seems modern and new. Since my dad’s name is Paul I think that this would be a fun way to pay tribute to him with a name that is similar but still a little different.

Thaddeus

Thaddeus is another name that has often been overlooked as a great name coming from The Bible. This is one of those names that is only going to get more popular in the future. I can foresee it being a big hit soon and if you want to get ahead of the game, you could choose this for your little one now.

Zacharias

The story of Zacharias and Jesus was always a favorite of mine as a child. I have always liked names that started with the letter “Z” as well because they are fun and unique. Not everyone has this letter in their name which makes the names feel a bit more special. I really think that this name, meaning “God remembers,” is a solid choice.
