  1. I chose Seth because in the bible Seth was Adam third son. Seth is my third son

  2. I wanted a biblical name of a man with a peaceful life.

  3. My first 2 boys are called Ely and Caleb so I wanted another old testament name to keep in context. Seth still sounds fairly modern and is a simple name for a child to spell and say.

  4. I loved the name Seth! Short & simple but also a very important bible character. After the tragedy with Cain and Abel, God chose Seth to make a new beginning (the first of a few). Also, God spoke clearly to my husband that our sons name would be Seth.

  5. A very special family member whose life was cut short in his 20s was near and dear to my heart, so our firstborn is his namesake. We hope that his kindness lives on in our son!
