Origin:Hebrew
Meaning:God has heard
From the Hebrew Shemu'el, Samual is a masculine name that means “God has heard." In its original rendering as Samuel, the title is tightly bound with the great judge and prophet who anointed both Saul and David as kings. While Samuel may find itself synonymous with a pre-determined path towards greatness—reiterated through the legacies of Samuel Adams, Samuel Beckett, and even Samuel L. Jackson—Samual is one unafraid to decide their own destiny. Shaking off a trove of celebrated lineages alongside its signature “e,” Samual lays itself open to a wealth of unknown possibilities. How exciting is that?
