Parents on a quest for a priestly name—your prays have been answered. Bishop is a masculine name of English and Greek origin, from the word epískopos, meaning “overseer,” which may prove accurate when baby gazes curiously at you. Once merely an occupational title for bishops, this churchly title holds its own as an up-and-coming personal name. Bishops are the leaders of many Christian faiths, having authority over church laws and protecting the morals of their dioceses. Whether you wish to honor your faith or gift baby a name that defies the norm, one can’t argue that Bishop has a nice ring to it.
