Comments for the name Barnabas


Comments for BARNABAS:

"Son of Encouragement" and "Son of the Prophet" mean essentially the same thing in the New Testament. Prophecy was redefined in the NT as speaking encouragement into someone's life. In the Old Testament, prophecy referred to predicting the future as revealed by the Holy Spirit. So the translation of Barnabas in Acts is accurate.

I never cared for the name Barnabas until Barnabas Collins, the most awesome vampire of all time! Also, Barnabas is the full name of Barney Fife from Andy Griffith.

Definitely a male name (don't get me wrong) I'm just having a hard time picturing it on a normal dude who's straight. I really am.
It's an ugly name regardless of who has it. Thank god it's not popular! Thank. God.
