"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed." Luke 2:1

I really don't know why you should have an aversion to using names that are mentioned in the Bible. There are a lot of lovely Bible names suitable for babies.

Names like...

Abaddon and Apollyon!

"And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon." Revelations 9:11

Beelzebub!

"But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils." Matthew 12:24

Moloch and Remphan!

"Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon." Acts 7:43

Baal and Ashtaroth!

And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth." Judges 2:13

Belial!

"And thus said Shimei when he cursed, Come out, come out, thou bloody man, and thou man of Belial." 2 Samuel 16:7

Dagon!

"Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice..." Judges 16:23

And last but not least... Nanaea!

"For when the leader was come into Persia, and the army with him that seemed invincible, they were slain in the temple of Nanaea by the deceit of Nanaea’s priests." II Maccabees 1:13
