  • "Love it. Named my son, born in 1984, Noah. Other Noahs were very rare back then. He likes his name, too., Bummer that it?s gotten so ridiculously popular, but he likes his name and I do, too. Rarely misspelled; however, once someone (an adult) spelled it ?Noah.? When he was a toddler, he would say his name was Nono!" Jan. 13, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "In Hebrew, NOAH is an anagram meaning "grace." Although similar, this is not quite the same as "peace." The Bible says that Noah walked with God. What name could grant a boy more power than the gentleness and awe of God's grace?" Feb. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Our son's name is Noah. I have yet to find a boy's name that I like better. It is a strong name and was significant in the Bible because "Noah" obeyed God when noone else would. Our daughter's name is Olivia, which means "olive tree". Significant because a dove brought an olive branch to Noah as a sign that the flood was over. (Genesis 6) This ties their names together . Very cool." May. 25, 2005: Report as inappropriate
