Bible Names

Bible names are part of our culture. They appear in our religions, art, music, literature, and many other manifestations, including our names. We use references to Bible figures to explain stories and events, for example, Noah and the Great Flood, or David and Goliath. Bible names from the Hebrew Bible are in Hebrew and have meaning. Some New Testament names are from Greek. In other languages and cultures, there are variations from the original language. For example, John in the original Hebrew is Yochanan, while in Germany it appears as Hans, Hansel, Johann, and Johannes. Some of the names below may be more familiar than others. Can you match them up correctly with their meaning and the event they are associated with?
