New parents looking for strong name choices can take inspiration from the Bible, with names of prophets, disciples and biblical figures from both the Old and New Testament. These biblical baby names are often found in the most popular name lists, but there is still plenty of scope for unusual picks – Balthazar and Dinah, anyone?

Biblical baby names range from the classics like John, Mary, Noah, Peter and Paul, to what seems like more modern choices, including Phoebe, Bethany and Leah. This mix of traditional and trendy offers plenty of baby name inspiration for parents-to-be, and reinvigorates the classics for future generations.
