What is in a name? If your name is David, it's a Hebrew word that means "beloved". If it's George, that's a Greek word that means "farmer". I know a David or two that's not beloved, and I've only met one farmer named George. Right now the #1 name for baby boys in the United States is Noah (which means "comfort") and for girls the #1 is Emma (which means "universal") While an infant can be comforting, a 2 year old is much less so, and "universal" is a difficult reputation to live up to.
Biblically speaking, a person's name means "Everything" The Hebrew word for name is שֵׁם "Shem" which can also mean designation, reputation, fame, glory, memorial, and monument just to name a few meanings. God has numerous names and each name describes an attribute of His majesty.
When confronted by a situation, any situation, call on God's name. His name is a strong, protective tower that the righteous run into and find safety (Proverbs 18:10), His name is holy and awesome (Psalm 111:9). God has many names and no matter what situation we face at least one of God's names reveal a characteristic we need to cling to.
The first name of God we see in the bible is אֱלֹהִים which is pronounced Elohim. We see it right at the very beginning of the book
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
