If you’re looking to jazz up classic English names then look no further than Simeon. This Hebrew and Russian name is ancient in terms of its age but is still somehow a modern take on Simon. The meaning of Simeon can be “to hear,” “to be heard,” and “reputation.” Simeon is referenced in the New Testament of the Bible and was the given name to one of Jacob’s sons who later gave his name to one of the twelve tribes of Israel. If you’re looking for a Biblical name that differs from traditional Simons, Marks, and Anthonys then Simeon is the way to go.
