RE: Christian/Religious Names
Robert, from the Old High German Hruodberht "bright with glory", which I take to mean "tripping on Morning Glory seeds".

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Hey hey hey! I'll take the 5th. I was young and stupid when I named him!

Everyone has the basic human right to be stupid Wink

Nah, it's just cultural. Like calling your kid Jesus... the worst names I've come across were from puritan England. Names like "Oh Be Joyful", "The Lord's My Shepherd Smith" - people *literally* used to call their kids that.

Re: Christian/Religious Names
Well my name is in the bibble but really it is a Roman Religious name in origin. I hated and still dislike having the common name of Mark but never because it's religious.

That's why I stick with references using my middle name.

RE: Christian/Religious Names
I was given a religiously based name. It's not a terrible name, and I guess I don't really mind it very much. My husband, also, has a Biblical name. Incidentally, our names go together Biblically. That kind of amuses me, actually.

I didn't want to do that, however. I specifically avoided any Biblical names with my son.

Oh-Be-Joyful was the name of a character in my favourite books (as a tween). Big Grin



My name is not biblical. It means crown of flowers, that symbolizes honour.

My first born is named after her dad, female version of Michael, but also means racoon (blackfoot dialect) or full moon (japanese dialect).

My second born's name means "to be loved".
