I like some biblical names. One of the boy names I like my mom HATES though. I've decided to not share any more names with her or anyone else after that.
I'm with you Abby don't tell anyone what you've picked til the baby gets here. Deal with it
Oh and Abby I like Zachariah. For a boy I like Elijah and Noah. And I love Rebekah especially the Biblical spelling.

We didn't tell anyone Zachariah's name until he was born and we told for the first time in the operating room. My mom was worried b/c all we would say was it was Biblical. Anyway, she was concerned b/c we had been studying Nebucanezzer in Sunday School--she actually thought we might name him that!!!
There is a Malachi at Zachariah's daycare. I always think Children of the Corn like Elaine said although I do like it. Zachariah has quite a few Jewish children in his class so there are lots of OT names. Zachariah fits right in! Especially since our last name it Weber. He could be mistaken for a little Rabbi!
My list for this baby includes...
Elijah or Alijah (both spellings are in the OT)
Ezekial (I can hear you all moaning over that one )
And for girls although I doubt we'll need them...
Noa or Noah
and my only non Biblical choice...Eleanor.
Come on, I can take it....What do you all think? Too out there? But do they fit in with our son's name? Also my name (Abigail) and Dh's (Michael) are Biblical in origin.

Generally speaking I am not a fan of most Bibical names, but here are the few exceptions to the rules:
Noa-I aboslutely love this; there was a woman in the Bible named this

|Grace||It was more like Stefford Wives. The mothers were these women who would look perfect even in a hurricane and who are way too into the baby talking to almost school aged children.|
|05-09-2005 12:45 PM|
|Elaine||Children of the corn|
|05-09-2005 12:45 PM|
|Grace||BTW, I did name a character (a main character even) Mallichi. It's a period novel and they used a lot of Old Testiment names back in the 19th Century.|
|05-09-2005 12:43 PM|
|Grace||They're okay, but I can't imagine naming my child Zebidiah (?) or Mortichi (?). These kids were Mallichi and Mortichi and stuff like that. The best of the bunch was Issac and Issiah.|

|Elaine||I had a really crappy step-father named David so that one is out for me too even though it isn't a bad name.|
|05-09-2005 12:40 PM|
|Grace||The other day, we were at that center of American culture, McDonalds, when we heard a ton of Old Testiment names and not the pretty ones - more like the Hepz-bah type. I did name a character Elijah! David is a great name. It's a common name in my and my dh's family (he has a brother named David), but Davids have always been crappy to me, so I would never name my kid that. Saul is nice too.|

Awe.. C'Mon Elaine!
Any well rounded child could carry the name Hepzi-Bah!
I like the 'traditional' names as well!
|05-09-2005 10:31 AM|
I like Asher
and Aaron, Elijah, Adam, Eve, Rachel, and Abigail too.
I could do without Hepzi-Bah or however you spelled her name though.
|05-09-2005 10:23 AM|
I like all of those, especially Leah.
I also like these:
Elijah (one that I like for a character, not for my kid)

|Grace||There's also Sharon and Rose (rose of sharon). I'm not a big Ester fan.|

Do you like Old Testiment names? Which ones do you like and which ones don't you like?
Since I am a writer (some of the time anyway), I'm always on the market for character names. So I have a lot of names I like for characters, but wouldn't necessarily name my child. KWIM?
Here's the Old Testiment names I like -
That's about it.
