Origin:Hebrew
Meaning:Belonging to God
Lemmie is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origin, meaning “belonging to God.” Quirky Lemmie is a definite contender for parents looking to honor their faith without opting for more commonly used biblical names. The name is a cute variant of the formal boy’s name, “Lemuel,” who appeared as a biblical king in the Proverbs. Belonging to God just as it belongs to literature, Lemuel appeared as the good-natured protagonist in Johnathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. It’s believed Swift—who is fluent in Hebrew—purposely chose the name because of its etymology and so representing a wandering man exiled from the promised land!
