Whats the silliest name in the bible?

My dd cracks up when she hears the name "Ham."

"They had Ham and eggs on the ark" she giggles.

    I know someone with this as a last name.
    Anyways silliest names would have to go with some of the Kings anmed in the Bible like the King of babylon and Asyria. I can't even read them. I'm not going to try typing them out either becasue they were ridiculously long

  • Most bible names if not all mean something. I think you all need to educate yourselves on the origin of the name before making ignorant comments. It just sounds silly because most of you cannot properly pronounce them.

    This is the prophet Isaiah's son. God picked out the name though; the name is a prophesy telling when the Assyrian invasion will be.
