Meaning:Of Adam; Son of red earth
Adank is a Swiss and German respelling of the much-loved biblical name Adam. Rooted in the Hebrew bible, it comes from the word _adamah_, meaning "ground," "earth," and "soil." Adam and its many forms have come to mean "son of red earth" after the story of Adam and Eve in Genesis. The scripture tells of the first human being created by God, formed from dust and soil. Alongside other Hebrew names, Adam became popular in Switzerland after the Protestant Reformation, while catholic saint names fell out of favor. This masculine name will make for a lovely fit if you want to share your faith with baby. Your sweet Adank will be a friend to Earth and love learning about the planet's many wonders!
