Big List of Biblical Baby Names

Are you soon to be expecting a beautiful new bouncing baby / daughter / addition to your life? Having a new addition to the family involves a number of important choices, such as choosing pushing chairs, toys, and names. Its choosing a name for your new baby, which can really become a sticking point… Have you considered a Biblical name for your baby?

To help. Here’s our Big List of Biblical Baby Names*

  1. Lois (Named after either a DC comics character, or Timothy’s Gran) 
  2. Mo. (Short for Moses)
  3. Del (Short for Delilah – perfect if from a hair dressing family)
  4. Zurishaddai (It would be fairly unique, and a challenge to school teachers taking the register)
  5. Sam (Short for Samson. Keep them away from anyone called Del)
  6. Mat. (Short for Matthias)
  7. Jude / Judith. (Named after Judas Iscariot) 
  8. Luc. (Short for Lucifer) 
  9. Lot. (His future wife will have lots of fun.)

It was the same argument.

They’ve had it for weeks.

It’s almost sweet, he’s not suggesting that she’s slept with someone else, he just doesn’t believe she’s pregnant.

It was his idea to have the scan early, he wanted to see how far she would carry this crazy story on. Why doesn’t she just say that if she doesn’t want to marry him?

But as he looked at the scan screen waiting for the answers, waiting to be proved right, Joe swallowed, and turned to his wife to be. Mary looked at his face, and knew Josephs world just blew wide open.

Saying Goodbye…

To put this all into a little perspective: I’m going to be a dad.

Well. Actually. I am a Dad.

Well. The baby’s not born yet, so I guess I’m an expectant dad to be.

I guess being a dad to be has made think about a whole new world of things, such as dirty nappies, the price of lego, and how to paint Toy Story style clouds in the nursery.

I guess, every now and then I think about things like sleepless nights, the helplessness of hearing my child scream itself though teething, and my baby not surviving birth. I dont talk about that last one, and I’m ok with not talking. Like other things, I put it in that Man Drawer in my mind, slam it shut, and get on with life. I dont talk about it because its uncomfortable, because it makes me face possibilities that I’m happy living without thinking about.

The sad truth is that there are people that face or have faced miscarriage, early term loss or early infant loss. If you or someone you know is dealing with something like this, I’d suggest checking out “Saying Goodbye”. Saying Goodbye is a series of events at Cathedrals around the country which (according to their website): “will include music by the resident choirs, gospel choirs and musicians, poetry and readings, multimedia presentations, personal messages, prayers, a message of hope and more. Each will be structured in such a way as to allow you to come and take part, or so you can simply sit and listen

I’ve spoken to them a few times over Twitter, and they seem like fantastic people involved in quite a sensitive subject. If you are interested in further information, I’d suggest to check out or @SayingGoodbyeUK.
