- Personal experiences with the name Reuel: | Edit
My husband and I could not agree on any name for our son! I like Bible names; he likes literary names. Reuel was the perfect compromise. It's Biblical with a strong literary pedigree (Tolkien). We paired it with "Alexander" for the meaning: "Friend of God, Defender/Protector of Mankind." I admit that when he first suggested it, I had my doubts, but now it seems perfect for my little guy!
