    Isaiah 8:1 The Lord named this person"Mahershalalhashbaz".

    King of Babylon 2 Kings 20:12 "Berodachbaladan or Merodachbaladan"

    King of Assyria 1 Chronicles 5:6 "Tilgathpilnesar"

    And then we have "Do Do" in 1 Chronicles 11 :12

    I never heard those names mention in the Ministry School.

    I wonder who had a hand in naming Do Do, Satan or God.

    Well I never knew the name DoDo was in the Bible. I remember finding out when I was kid in the mid 60's that the name Gomer is biblical, it was the same time that the show Gomer Pyle was on TV.

    When the name Salome came up in one of the meetings and a child was doing the reading our answering the question you just knew they were going to pronounce it "salami", and a few adults pronounced it that way as well.

    These three sons of Benjamin are my favorites! Can you imagine their mother calling them for dinner?

    (Genesis 46:21) 21 And the sons of Benjamin were Be′la and Be′cher and Ash′bel, Ge′ra and Na′a·man, E′hi and Rosh, Mup′pim and Hup′pim and Ard.

    Maybe it just gets lost in translation.

    Maybe "Bob and Mike" would be better.

    DoDo meaning, Amatory and loving. Yes such loving parents DoDo had.
