Biblical powerhouses, such as Moses, Noah and Jonah, have been resurrected from their “belongs to bearded old men” status to become the height of chic. Check out these up-and-coming names from “The Good Book”.

Abraham
Its association with President Lincoln kept this name from enjoying the same spotlight of biblical brethren such as Samuel and Lucas.  A heavy vintage appeal and bevy of handsome nicknames (Abe, Bram, and Abram) make it one to watch in the new year!

Asher
Having risen about one hundred spaces in the last five years, Asher is smoking hot! American Idol alum Justin Guarini chose it for his son, born in February.

Delilah
When the group Plain White T’s released their hit “Hey There Delilah” in 2006, this name rocketed up the charts.

Isaiah
Want a little dude that’s cherubic and sporty? Look no further! With famous bearers such as the NBA’s Isaiah Thomas and the NFL’s Isaiah Harris, it’s no wonder Tim & Elisabeth Hasselbeck chose this long overlooked name for their youngest, born in 2009.

Leah
Currently the 33rd most popular name for girls in the country, many opt for the lovely Leah as a less common alternative to Sarah, Hannah, Rebecca or Rachel.

Esther
This Old Testament stunner with a celestial meaning (“star”) is on the ascent with such stylish parents as Ewan McGregor.
