In a roundabout way.
My name is Ian which is the Scottish-Gaelic form of John.

Yep, likely in some translations, but as an adjective.

Ephraim! Woo! Haha, it's funny only because when someone sees that name and knows how to say it or hears it and knows how to spell - I instantly know they read the Bible extensively.

Nope. Roman deity of Mars. So, no. Actually only one person in my family is named after a Biblical figured (Mikhail) but we all have Hebrew names so in the Synagogue for religious services, we use different names.

Funny story, the priest at the family’s parish wouldn’t baptize me because my first name wasn’t Christian. Dad had to scramble to find a priest that would.

Maybe a variation, with 2 less letters than mine.

Of variation of it… Susan - Susanna in Lk 8:1-3; there is also a Susanna in Daniel 13, but it is considered by some to be apocrypha.

Hell yeah. My name is Luke, so I've got one book WITH MY NAME and Acts, which was also written by big boy Luke, and he gets name dropped in a couple of the Pauline epistles as well.

Yes. Thomas the disciple. We share the name, but not the skepticism.

His skepticism lasted only for a moment, and after it was dispelled, he carried the word east into Persia and even India until he found martyrdom.

No idea. They made me take another name when I got confirmed though. Maybe that was because mine isn’t in the Bible. I don’t know.

My ex and his siblings had to do the same thing. They weren’t given middle names in anticipation of them doing so.
