Each name mentioned in the Bible has a specific meaning...here are a few to get an idea as to the meaning of the names...

Starting with Genesis:

Adam: man
Eve: life, living
Abel: a breath, vapor, or vanity
Cain: a possession; a spear
Seth: appointed; a substitute
Enoch: initiated; dedication; commencement—probably signifying a new manner of life
Jared: descent

Fervent...I agree with you. The meaning of names is significant. Here is what I found on the internet. There are lists that tell about names of men, women, etc...found at this link:

http://christiananswers.net/dictionary/men.html

I am interested in what the names mean, when in context with the order of names given in the scriptures. I love you Kind of like this (taking the meaning of the names that I have already given and only using the meaning of the names...(I made one correction, Cain was born before Abel...)

man: life, living a possession; a spear appointed; a breath, vapor, or vanity a substitute
initiated; dedication; commencement—probably signifying a new manner of life descent
