Samuel Meaning
From the Hebrew name (Shemu'el) which could mean either "name of God" or "God has heard". Samuel was the last of the ruling judges in the Old Testament. He anointed Saul to be the first king of Israel, and later anointed David. As a Christian name, Samuel came into common use after the Protestant Reformation. Famous bearers include American inventor Samuel Morse (1791-1872), Irish writer Samuel Beckett (1906-1989), and American author Samuel Clemens (1835-1910), who wrote under the pen name Mark Twain. Samuel is an Anglicized form of the Hebrew name "Shemuel or Shmuel", derived from the Hebrew words "shama", which means "to hear", and "El", which means "God or all powerful".
