If you’d like to give your son a biblical name with an important meaning, Ezekiel (“strength of God”) could be what you’re looking for. Considered one of the greatest prophets of his time, Ezekiel wrote the Old Testament book bearing his name and was among the captives taken to Babylon during the first fall of Jerusalem. Today his name is particularly popular with Jewish parents. Despite its deeply religious connotation, the name is sometimes shortened to Zeke, which has the personality of a cool surfer dude.
