I like this name, it's quite rare and has a good ring to it, one that is quiet but easily heard.

Solomon is a nice, strong, handsome, classic name. :) It seems quite underused compared to other religious names. I've never met a Solomon so the name seems fresh to me.

For some reason this name makes me think of a bald guy. It doesn't have a very pleasant sound to it, it's rather harsh.

The name Solomon is also frequently used in Georgia.

In Georgian, Solomon is written as: სოლომონ.

This name was borne by two kings of Imereti. Imereti is located in what is now western Georgia.

The biblical Solomon turned away from God because he had hundreds of pagan wives and ending up worshipping their gods instead of Jehovah.

However, he did many other things (good things) with his life- so I still like this name. Sol is a good nickname.

Maybe it's okay on a Hasidic Jew.

I find the name very handsome, but now that I think about it the only reason I think I really liked it for was, because of Solomon of blood+, I saw him as a very dashing, worthy man of his word. So if I had not seen it as a somewhat old time gentleman name I may not have ever liked it. But I like it now so I suppose I would most definitely recommend this name if you are into the civil war kind of gentleman name.

I like it. It reminds me of the line from The Fiddler on the Roof song "If I Were a Rich Man":

"The most important men in town would come to fawn on me!
They would ask me to advise them,
Like a Solomon the Wise."

Solomon Perel wrote "Hitlerjunge Salomon," an autobiographical book about how he hid his Jewish heritage and pretended to be Aryan during the second world war in order to stay safe. The book was made into the movie "Europa, Europa."

I love this name! I think it is strong and handsome, and it sounds intelligent. My husband and I named our son, born in May '08, Solomon.

I hate this as a first name. It sounds very surname-y to me, and quite pompous as a first name.

Cute nickname is "Sol".

Solomon is the lead singer's name for Family Force 5. I like this name, but I never hear of lots of people with this name. That's great. It's one of those names that's only good on a few people. I hope people keep it that way.

Solomon, King David's son in the Bible, wrote the famous book, "song of songs" or "song of Solomon." He was one of the most AWESOME guys ever!

Love the meaning, and since I found an ancestor named this, I'm now considering using it!

It's derived from the Hebrew name ùîòåï.

'Solomon' can also be used as a surname. In fact, my great-grandmother's maiden name was Solomon.
