If you’re looking to jazz up classic English names, look no further than Simeon. Flaunting ancient Hebrew origins, Simeon succeeds as a modern-sounding take on Simon. The meaning of Simeon includes "He (God) has heard," "He who hears," and "listening" or "hearing," playing into the classic saying "little pitchers have big ears" for your curious little one. Simeon is referenced in the New Testament of the Bible and was 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.
