Mahlon is a masculine name of Hebrew origin, meaning “sick,” “sickness,” and “sickly.” This ancient appellation comes from the name Makhlōn and is recorded in the Old Testament. Mahlon was the son of Elimelech and Naomi and the husband of Ruth—a woman whose story is one of great faith. While Mahlon has a rather unappealing meaning to some, it’s certainly a unique title for baby and a tribute to one’s faith.
