Meaning:God is my judge
Daniel remains one of the most fascinating figures in the Bible and one of the most enduring boys' names, no matter if you are in the US, Ireland or Spain. Known for interpreting dreams and visions, Daniel survives being thrown into the lion's den by his enemies and emerges to become one of the Bible's great prophets. Since 1952, the name has regularly shown up in the Social Security Administration's top 10 or top 20 boys' names. Solange Knowles named her son Daniel after his father in 2004 but calls him by his middle name, Julez.
