Choose this name if you're looking for a baby name with a biblical background. In the Old Testament, Solomon, the son of David and Bathsheba, succeeded his father as king of Israel and was revered for his wisdom. Derived from the Hebrew shalom, meaning "peace," Solomon has always been an important name to the Jewish community, and after a decline in popularity in the 20th century, it's now finding its way back on the baby name charts.
