Pronounced: GID-ee-ən (English)
Means "feller" or "hewer" in Hebrew. Gideon was a hero of the Old Testament who led the Israelites against the Midianites. In the English-speaking world, Gideon has been used as a given name since the Protestant Reformation, and it was popular among the Puritans.
I really like the name Gideon! I think it's an interesting name that's easy to say and it's recognizable without being weird or too common. Not 100% sure if I'd use it but it is on my long list! Very nice.
