father of a multitude
Since he’s considered the founder of the Jewish people, it’s no wonder Abraham's name means “father of a multitude.” According to the Old Testament, God made a pact with Abraham to give him a “multitude of descendants,” which is how he became the father of Isaac when he was 100 and his wife, Sarah, was 90. Need more proof that Abraham is an awesome name? Think about the legacy of Abraham Lincoln who abolished slavery during his presidency. Both men were powerful, tenacious and smart—traits any parent would be eager to see in a son.
