Meaning:God's strength, God's lion
Originating from Hebrew, the boy’s name Othniel means “God’s lion.” This biblical name comes from one of the judges of Israel that was sent by the Lord to save the people of Israel from the oppression of the king of Mesopotamia. After defeating the king, he became a hero in the eyes of the Israelites and was known as the first and best judge. Although it’s unlikely your little Othniel won’t have to defeat a power-hungry king, you might arm them with this name, just in case! Regardless, baby will remember the subtle ferocity disguised in soft syllables, just waiting for the signal to pounce.
