If baby adds a certain spark to your life, why not consider the name Shamir? This original boy’s name has roots in the Hebrew language and means “flint.” A tool that has been used for generations to make fire and other stone tools, Shamir is said to be a legendary tool—or in some retellings, a worm-like creature—that could cut through and disintegrate stone, diamond, and iron. It was used by Solomon to help him build the First Temple of Jerusalem. Baby Sha is sure to feel a deep connection to their faith with a name like this!
