Comments and insights on the name Mordecai: | Edit

I love the name, Mordecai. In fact, my son, who will be born in 8 days, will be named Mordecai. It is Hebrew for warrior for God. Mordecai is a good strong Christian name for a boy, and I love it!

:I just have to point out, Mordecai is not Hebrew for "warrior of God". It means "follower of Marduk" (Marduk, a Babylonian god).
