GIDEON
Gender: Masculine
Usage: Biblical, English, Jewish
Other Scripts: גִדְעוֹן (Hebrew)
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.

I lived in Israel for a few years and it's used a lot over there. It's not my style, but it's allright.

I really like it. My mind jumped right awy to the bible, even so I wouldn't use it.

I really like it, but not for a human. I think it sounds like an awesome cat name!
