Retro Hebrew names

A friend of mine is pregnant with #2, a boy. Big sister is [name]Noah[/name].

Her husband likes retro cool names – [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Sam[/name], [name]Joseph[/name]. She likes slightly more hip but still Biblical / Hebrew names like [name]Ezekiel[/name] ([name]Zeke[/name]) and [name]Asher[/name] (her #1 choice). Their names styles aren’t a world apart, but they’re having trouble finding just the right thing. Suggestions please, Berries?? Thank you!

What about [name]Caleb[/name]? [name]Shiloh[/name]? [name]Micah[/name]?

Good luck!


The Old Testament in the Bible is a treasure trove for boys names. Here are some of my favs.
[name]Abraham[/name] / [name]Abram[/name]

Cool Bible Place Names

Oh I forgot some others…

Thank you! I will pass them on. Any more?

You have to suggest [name]Zebedee[/name] I think it is a great name.

I will do! [name]Zebediah[/name] is one of her favorites, but the husband thinks it’s a bit out there. [name]Zeb[/name] is such a cool nickname.

[name]Josiah[/name] seems like a good compromise for them.

I think some of these were already listed, but these come to mind



[name]Adah[/name] (F)
(but with a sibling [name]Noah[/name], maybe we want to stay away from -ah endings)


for a girl…
