I have one beautiful little boy and his name completely formed him! Ethan SETH is his name. We based his name on initials ESP for guitar and bass brand (his father is a musician), and he gets all kinds of neat stuff with his initials on it! Seth is an awesome name!

What a blessing to have a son that was giving the name Seth. The meaning beeing the appointed one! or anointed one! it shows God's favor and more than that, the calling that this Child have before God! To replace something or someone that has been lost, to continue the work and never let it stop!Once Abel died, Cain had many children and that generation it was getting more and more evil, than when Seth came, his children began to worship God again! This is awesome!! Brought back all the Goodness that comes with having a Great relationship with Jesus our Lord, God and Savior!

I love the name Seth and want to name my baby after him. My husband is really afraid cos everyone keeps asking if we're naming the baby after the Egyptian God of Chaos also called Seth or Set. I am sooo annoyed!
