Meanings and history of the name Jedidiah

Jedidiah (Ye-dee-dee-yah) was the name given to King Solomon by Jehovah at his birth through the prophet Nathan. Jedidiah was conceived when David and Bathsheba were married. They named him Solomon but the Lord named him Jedidiah. It was a sign of David had repented and God forgave him. David (Daw-veed) in Hebrew means "beloved". Jedidiah may sound like Ya-David-ya ... which explains why it means (Beloved of Lord God). The letter J = iah. They have the same meaning and similar sound. (J= yah, iah = yah).
