About
David originates in Hebrew and means "adored". It has been one of the most popular masculine given names over centuries, and in different spellings all over the world. It functions as a surname as well. Throughout history it was popular with royalty. The most famous bearer is David, the second king of the United Kingdom of Israel and Jesus Christ's ancestor. ::David held the top spot in the country for just one year, 1960, but has remained a steady and constant presence in the top 20 for decades. It is both a biblical name and a royal name, thanks to King David, who as a boy defeated the giant Goliath with his slingshot. The young shepherd also happened to be a poet, a musician who played the lyre, a soldier, a statesman and a prophet. David is a name that belongs to no single country or religion. Two medieval kings of Scotland and the patron saint of Wales also bear the name.
