Additional information Samuel:

  • Biblical name with possible meaning 'He (God) has hearkened'. It may also be understood as a contracted form of Hebrew sha'ulme'el meaning 'asked of God'. In the case of Samuel the son of Hannah, this would be more in keeping with his mother's statement 'Because I have asked him of the Lord'. Living in the 11th century BC, Samuel was a Hebrew judge and prophet of the greatest historical importance, who established the Hebrew monarchy, anointing as king both Saul, and later, David. In England and America the name was particularly popular among the 16th-century Puritans and among Nonconformists from the 17th - 19th century. Rose in popularity in early 1990s; borne by Samuel L. Jackson (actor) and Fireman Sam (cartoon character).

  • This popular Old Testament name -- the biblical Samuel established the Hebrew monarchy -- hasn’t left the top 100 for more than a decade. It was really popular in the last part of the nineteenth century, dropped a little in the mid-twentieth century, then jumped again to a peak of 21 in ’05. Since then it’s slipped out of the top 25, but we still find it an endearing choice. Come on, who can resist a little Sam? Despite its popularity, it remains one of the comfiest, friendliest names around.
  • From the Hebrew name שְׁמוּאֵל (Shemu'el) which could mean either "name of God" or "God has heard". Samuel was the last of the ruling judges in the Old Testament. He anointed Saul to be the first king of Israel, and later anointed David. As a Christian name, Samuel came into common use after the Protestant Reformation. Famous bearers include American inventor Samuel Morse (1791-1872), Irish writer Samuel Beckett (1906-1989), and American author Samuel Clemens (1835-1910), who wrote under the pen name Mark Twain.
