Name Blog: David

Gender: Masculine
Usage: English, Jewish, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Czech, Slovene, Biblical
Other Scripts: דָוִד (Hebrew), Давид (Russian)
Pronounced: DAY-vid (English), da-VEED (French) [key]
Possibly derived from Hebrew דוד (dvd) meaning "beloved". David was the second and greatest of the kings of Israel, ruling in the 10th century BC. Several stories about him are told in the Old Testament, including his defeat of Goliath, a giant Philistine. Jesus was supposedly descended from him. Other famous bearers of this name include the 5th-century patron saint of Wales, two kings of Scotland, empiricist philosopher David Hume, and explorer David Livingstone. This is also the name of the hero of Charles Dickens' semiautobiographical novel 'David Copperfield'.

My mother likes the name. So do I.

Thank you, Crabbi!

You're welcome! BTW, you come across as more of a David than a Dave. Not that there is anything wrong with Dave...

Blogger Yoga Korunta said...

Thanks, again! Though I answer to both, I prefer the real name and always use it when introducing myself.

You're welcome. I feel the same about Crabletta/Crabbi ;)
