  1. I love the story in the Bible and the meaning of the name is really special to us. Our daughter, Miriam, was stillborn at 37 weeks and Gideon is our rainbow baby. His name means “Destroyer” or “Conqueror” and it is just a reminder that Jesus has CONQUERED death. Even though we are temporarily separated from our baby girl on earth, we know we will see her again someday in Heaven because Jesus has overcome the grave. <3

  2. I wanted a unique Biblical name

  3. We wanted a Biblical name that you didn’t hear cert often.

  4. My husband actually chose it, because it’s a strong name.

  5. I name him Gideon because it is biblical and through the leading of Holy Spirit. Has God ministred to me on that faith day ! I love the name because it fit the challenges we passed through during his pregnancy.

  6. My husband picked this name for a baby boy before we even were thinking about kids. He was inspired by the main character in an assassin book. I like it because it is a biblical name of a Judge. It’s fun to have multiple reasons behind picking it.

  7. I named my son Gideon for a couple of reasons. Our last name begins with a G and Gideon is a strong biblical character. I absolutely love my baby’s name and don’t regret it.

  8. While I was pregnant with Gideon…I went through a whole lot and Gideon was still very strong and agile this he became “our little warrior” Gideon “Giddy boy” as fondly called by his dad

  9. I chose Gideon because Gideon was a strong character in the Bible and because our last name begins with a “G”.
