Biblical girl names - girls names and their meanings from the bible


In the western world we often refer to first names as Christian names. However, Christian names are really those given to followers of Christ or taken from the Bible, which of course often meant being followers of Christ. In essence the names on this website are Christian, christian names along with both the meaning of the names and also some history of the name. This could be where the name is found in the bible, the most famous Christian who held the name or the first known (or at least recorded) occurence of the name.

History of Name:  Melanie doesn't appear in the Christian Bible. Perhaps the most famous religious connection is Saint Melania the Younger. She was a wealthy Roman patrician noble and the granddaughter of Saint Melania the Elder. Married against her will to Valerius Pinianus (Saint Pinian) at age 13. In 410, the couple fled to Tagaste in North Africa where they had estates, and where they met Saint Augustine of Hippo. Though they stayed married, the two took vows of celibacy, freed their slaves, sold their lands and goods in Spain and Gaul, and gave the proceeds to the poor.
