Comments for SHEKINAH:

This name is never used among Jewish people. It would be like calling a child G-d.

I have a friend named Shekinah and she pronounces it sh-KY-nah.

I've heard that a lot of New Age-y people, especially Wiccans tend to use this name. I think it is offensive.

Anonymous User, what evidence do you have that "New Age" people use this name frequently? I've never heard of this name before today, myself. And why in the world would it "offend" you if they did anyway? Personally, when I first saw it, I thought it was another made-up name used by black parents for their kids. If you put this name in a search engine, only fundamentalist Christian and Jewish sites pop up.

No, New Age and Wicca people do not use this name. It is speaking of the God of the Jews who now lives in born-again believers via The Holy Spirit/Jesus.

First of all, "sarahj" that was kinda rude what you said about black parents making up names, that's not always true. I like the name. It's different.

This name sounds stupid and trashy. It looks like something that cult members would name their daughter. Plus it's rather blasphemous to be using. It's like naming your child God.
