First Names

The name Adam originated from the Hebrew word pronounced aw-dawm which means man as a species, male and female. The word is found over 500 times through the entire Hebrew Scriptures (the so-called "Old Testament"). In the King James Version, it is translated 13 times as "Adam," 121 times as "men" and 408 times as "man."

"1:27 So God created man [i.e. aw-dawm] in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:27 KJV)

"2:23 And Adam [i.e. aw-dawm] said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man [i.e. aw-dawm]." (Genesis 2:23 KJV)

"6:1 And it came to pass, when men [i.e. aw-dawm] began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them" (Genesis 6:1 KJV)

"This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man"

As with "Adam," the first names were most-often chosen as an adjective that expressed some attribute of the person or the person's birth. The name Eve originated from the Hebrew word pronounced khawv-vah which means living. "Eve" is found only twice in the Scriptures, primarily because aw-dawm ("adam") more often than not refers to the species as a whole, male and female i.e. as noted above, "1:27 So God created man [i.e. aw-dawm] in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:27 KJV).

Man

"3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life." (Genesis 3:20-24 KJV)

The first human born in a natural way (unlike his parents Adam and Eve who were "born" in a Supernatural way, Adam directly from the earth, Eve who had a man for her "mother") was Cain, from the Hebrew word pronounced kaw-yin, which means possession.

"4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD." (Genesis 4:1 KJV)

Abel originated from the Hebrew word pronounced heh-bel which means breath or passing. Abel became humanity's first murder victim when his brother became humanity's first murderer.

"4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel.

And Abel was a keeper of sheep [see My Brother's Shepherd], but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. 4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: 4:5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

4:6 And the LORD [see Christ The Creator] said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? 4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him." (Genesis 4:2-8 KJV)

Adam and Eve's third-born son was named Seth, from the Hebrew name pronounced shayth, meaning compensation or substituted.

"4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. " (Genesis 4:25 KJV)
