Article: Biblical Names
Who loves you, baby? --Biblical names for babies are becoming popular among some Hollywood celebrities, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Consider these names of glitterati newborns:
Aaron, Robert DeNiro's son; Isaac, Annie Potts' boy; Delilah Belle, for Harry Hamlin's daughter. Oh, yes. Let's not forget (is it possible?) Shiloh Jolie-Pitt.
It seems that parents want names that have a "meaningful, spiritual" quality, says Judith Tropea, author of "Classic Biblical Baby Names."
So, if you want to avoid the oh-so-common Scriptural handles for your child, Tropea offers some less familiar ones:
Damaris -- She listened to Paul preach in Athens.
Elisheba -- She was the wife of Moses' brother Aaron.
Kezia -- She was Job's second daughter.
Aeneas -- A paralyzed man who was healed by Peter.
Nicanor -- He was an early disciple of the church in Jerusalem.
Zuriel -- He was a Levite ruler during the exodus from Egypt.
Clearly, parents don't want just any Tom, Dick or Sally for their children's names. (How about Shealtial?)
