User comments for Daniel (Meaning / History Only)

The chief of staff renamed them with these Babylonian names: Daniel was called Belteshazzar (Daniel 1:7 - Holy Scripture). We are in great need today of those like Daniel (a.k.a. - Belteshazzar), who excel in every field of wisdom, knowledge and integrity!

Alternate translation, "Judge from God".

The literal translation of the name Daniel is "Judged of God" (Judged by God).
The pronunciation of Daniel in Hebrew is "dan-ee-EL" - closely matching the root name. Shortened to dan-YEL in Romance languages, this pronunciation carries a feminine connotation in English.
