Biblical Baby Boy Names: From Aaron to Zechariah

A name commonly represented a person's personality or reputation in Bible times. Names were chosen to reflect the child's character or express the parents' dreams or wishes for the child. Hebrew names often had familiar, easy-to-understand meanings.

The prophets of the Old Testament frequently gave their children names that were symbolic of their prophetic ministry. Hosea named his son Lo-ammi, which means “not my people,” because he said the people of Israel were no longer the people of God.

Nowadays, parents continue to treasure the ancient tradition of choosing a name from the Bible—a name that will hold particular significance for their child. This comprehensive list of biblical baby boy names draws together actual names in Scripture and names derived from biblical words, including the language, origin, and meaning of the name (see also Baby Girl Names).

Start your son off with a blessing. Here is my list for beautiful biblical baby boy names and their meanings.

Biblical baby boy names

The joy of naming a baby is unlike any other. It’s a special season as you and your partner search for the perfect name for your new baby.

There is a beauty in blessing your child with a biblical name. The search for the perfect name is a very personal one, but I’m assuming if you’re reading this, you’re interested in some biblical baby boy names for your little man. Here are some tips before we get started.

Tips for Naming

  • Be flexible
  • Consider if any family members should be honored
  • For names that are loved by one spouse and not by the other, consider using it as a middle name instead.
  • Consider if the name will be shortened (example: Jeremiah = Jerry or Jeremy) and whether you want or like that
  • You may want to consider omitting the names of exes
  • Say names in full, out loud to hear how it sounds.

Other Advice

Choosing a name can be fun, but it can also lead to disagreements, especially if you are passionate about a name. Maybe there is a name you picked out years ago, but your partner doesn’t like it. That can be a tough pill to swallow. Therefore, I suggest praying before each naming brainstorm. Give your partner permission to veto names they truly dislike.

Lastly, picking a name is a very special event in having a child. Your child’s name will follow him all of his life and may even be passed down. I hope that you enjoy the process of naming your little. Finally, here is the best advice, I can give. Lots of people, family included, will have an opinion about the name you choose. But their opinion doesn’t matter. That’s between you and the child’s father. Don’t let anyone’s comments bother you or rob you of joy.

    Bible Names for Boys

    Bible names for boys have dominated the US popularity list for its entire history, with Biblical boy names Jacob and Noah taking the top spot for nearly twenty years until recently, when Liam took over.

    Along with Noah and Jacob, other Bible baby boy names in the US Top 25 include James, Benjamin, Elijah, Lucas, Ethan, Samuel, and David. Unique biblical boy names gaining visibility – in the UK and Australia as well as the US – include Asher, Cyrus, Ezra, and Thaddeus.

    Faith and religion have always been an important component of why parents choose Bible names for their sons. Boys' names from the Bible that have ranked highly in the US since the 19th century include John, James, Joseph, and Thomas. These and many other Biblical boys' names have been so widely used over so much time that many people may forget their biblical antecedents.

    Old Testament names for boys once considered too antiquated for the modern world have become more popular in recent years. More and more baby boys are being given such Old Testament names as Abraham, Moses, Jonah, Ezra, and Abel, going far beyond names like Adam, Zachary, and Samuel which were among the first Old Testament boy names to be revived.

    Old Testament names are the only Biblical names that Jewish parents consider, whereas Christian parents are usually open to both Old Testament and New Testament -- which includes Jesus Christ -- boys' names.

    New Testament boy names becoming more popular include Silas, Jude, Titus, and Luke. James, a classic boys' name from the New Testament, is popular as both a first and a middle name.

    As parents are searching for uncommon but meaningful names for their sons, the Bible can be a great source of inspiration. Unique Bible names for boys we are hearing more of include Abiah, Azariah, Boaz, Lazarus, Lucius, Phineas, and Zion.

    Biblical names for boys are widely used outside the US, too. In the UK, the top Biblical boy names are Noah, Jacob, and Thomas. In Germany, Paul and Elias are the top Bible names for boys, while in France Gabriel and Adam are the most popular boys' names from the Bible.

    The first 50 names below, shown in extended versions, are ranked in order of current popularity on Nameberry. More unique Biblical boy names are listed alphabetically below the top names. Access the full range of names for boys via our central page for boy names.
