Matthew

gift of God
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 22
Matthew is truly a classic and beloved boys' name and was in the top 10 from 1972 to 2008. It is a biblical name, a saint’s name and the name of one of the 12 apostles. Before Matthew became an apostle (and the patron saint of bankers and accountants), he was known as Levi. It’s no surprise that actor Matthew McConaughey named his firstborn son Levi in 2008. Today Matthew remains solidly in the top 20, with parents also finding Mateo, Matteo, Matias and Matthias appealing.
