feller of trees; powerful warrior
If you’re looking for a boys' name from the Bible, you’ll want to make this one a contender. God asked Gideon to save the Jews from the Midianites. The name has a heroic connotation, and parents are attracted to it, because who doesn’t want their son to be a hero (even just in their minds)? As far as its rank compared with other biblical names, like Jacob and David, it’s not one you hear as often, which makes it a bit distinct.
