Some of the names you mention are already listed in the database. Click the links in this message to see the meanings.

Eli and Hannah are both biblical names.
Bethel is a biblical place name meaning "house of God".
Gilead is probably from Gilad, another place name mentioned in the Bible, possibly meaning "hill of testimony".
Naum is probably from the name of the prophet Nahum .
Meshack might be a variant of Meshach , a person mentioned in the Book of Daniel (3:12-30). It's possible this name derives from that of a Chaldean god.
Percy and Shelby are not biblical.
Galatia = Galatea = a nymph in Greek mythology.
Gayer ? Maybe a surname?

Hope that helps.
