"I have a 7 year old son named Israel. You don't hear it that often, which was a big plus for me (unlike John, Matthew and Michael, which are nice names, but much too common). Everyone spells Israel like "Isreal." Drives me nuts! I love the meaning "soldier for the lord." Well, if anyone is uncertain what to name their little baby boy, Israel is a great choice for a name.... uncommon and classy." Nov. 15, 2009:
