Meaning:son of red earth
In the Old Testament, Adam is the first man created by God out of clay. The name draws meaning from "adama," the Hebrew word for “earth.” On the TV show "Girls," viewers got a double dose of Adam: Hannah’s on-and-off boyfriend Adam Sackler was played by Adam Driver. And bringing even more fame to the name is Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.
