to hear, to be heard; reputation
Simon is one of those names with a biblical background that doesn’t sound ancient in modern times. In the New Testament, Simon—a form of the Hebrew name Simeon—was an apostle (known as Simon Peter). Though the name has been used in English-speaking countries for centuries, it has a British feel. One of the most famous men with the name is Simon Cowell, the tell-it-like-it-is English judge on “The X Factor.”
