  1. Simon is a good name

  2. Strong biblical name… means to hear or to listen

  3. I just loved the name!

  4. I’ve always loved the name Simon, it’s classic and yet not too common. I think it’s perfect for my little boy.

  5. He’s a big guy, in a small body. This young man has enough energy for everyone, and his voice is larger than his body. Never a full moment when he’s in the room.

  6. My husband and I still didn’t have a name when he was born, and we are only given 2 days to choose (I live in Thailand). So we were looking up baby names the entire time we were in the hospital. It was difficult because my husband is Lao, and we wanted to make it an easy name for his family to pronounce. We came across Simon and loved how it sounded, and it suited our little boy so well. It’s such a simple name, but also a classic.
