Biblical Christian Female girl Baby Names

Christian Baby Names Biblical Names with Meanings

Are you searching for a Christian Baby Name for your baby girl or new born baby boy but are unsure where to start? Below, you will find (hopefully) some inspiration to get you started on your baby name search. Feel free to browse the alphabetic listing of Christian Boy Names and Christian Girl Baby Names below.

This is a collection of popular Christian male boy baby names. The term Christian names often confuses and to make clear, these originate from two main sources: the Bible and from the saints who have been created throughout church history. In some Western cultures the first name is also called the christian name with no real link to the Bible or the saints. Even in an increasingly secular society, Christian first names are still as popular as ever.

This section is a little different from the rest of the site where the meaning of the baby name is only given. It is the intention to give a little story or background to some of these biblical Christian names in addition to the meaning.
