Background of Christian Names
In Bible most of the names have a meaning and a prophecy attached with them, which makes them stand out from the common names. Those names form a part of a legend and a prophecy, which paved the way for the son of the God to come to this earth and redeem the mere mortals for their sins. These names can be names of men, women, supernatural beings, natural endowments or cities and towns. So here we would try to cover names form each category just to describe the significance of the Christian meaning of names.
Things to Remember when Naming your Child
When you are naming your child be careful about the name and its meaning because the name would be one thing that your child would have to live with all his or her life. Moreover when you choose names check the entire background of the character whose name you have chosen because at times the meaning of the name might not be offensive but the acts of the character might be. Always remember that your child would grow up and have an opinion and you definitely not like him to complain regarding his name. So choose a name that he can feel proud of and which would inspire him in his bad times because trust me names do have an influence on us when we are looking for support and help.
