GIDEON - A strong, masculine Biblical name. It also ends in -n, which makes it fit well with two current boys' name trends, but it is still uncommon. In the Bible, Gideon was a hero of the Old Testament, leading the Israelites against the Midianites.

Gideon is one of my favorites! I've loved it ever since I first read "Practical Magic" by Alice Hoffman (the book the movie is based on). In the book, Kylie's best friend (slash-boyfriend) was named Gideon. I always thought that was such a cool sounding name! Plus, I've always liked Hebrew/Biblical names (even though I am not Christian or Jewish).

My husband's name is very similar to it... Gwyddion. Pronounced just like Gideon except with a "w" in there... so like "gwideon". Love it.

I like it, alot. I started liking it when I heard it on the one news guy on MTV a few years ago. But it is a biblical name and I am not a religious person and since its not very popular yet I'm afraid everyone would ask about the biblical association... not that thats a bad thing but it deters me from choosing it sorry for the long explaination!
