When parents end up choosing a biblical name, it is sometimes for religious reasons, but for many it is also because a biblical name has a story behind it. In this way, you can choose a name that refers to a particularly interesting person or story that you might identify yourself or your child with. Moreover, the names are very old, and therefore appear classic and traditional. You often see biblical names being in fashion for a long time, as is the case with the modern name Lucas, which has been very popular in recent years. On this page we have chosen to link a little story to most of the names, so that you can see which biblical person the name refers to.
There are many variations and spellings of each name. A biblical name can therefore easily be made personal, or more/less modern and popular. For example, there are these versions of the boy's name Alexander: Al, Alec, Alex, Alexis, Allister, Sandy, Sasha, Alexandra, Alexia, Sandra, Sondra. *
