It’s no wonder Noah has had a meteoric rise among biblical names. A top 15 pick for boys since 2009, Noah’s ascent has been nothing short of miraculous. In the Bible, Noah survived the Great Flood by building an ark. That’s the kind of resourcefulness and steadfastness that parents pay attention to—and may wish to bestow on their own sons. If you’re looking for a name that’s built to endure storms and weather disasters, this is the one.
