Everything about Name Meaning Gifts

framed name meaning prints by the Dehnart family


We'll research a name for you, or you can read the unique story behind a name, learn the origin of God's many titles and names, shop through our unique name meaning gifts, and find out why CrossTimber is all about names.  There are over 100 pages of unique name meaning gifts, articles about name meaning research, stories about the encouragement through names and insights on God's name.


Our original name meaning plaques, mugs and keepsake boxes come in 100s of designs, and can be personalized with any name.  Thanks for visiting!



Do you know
what your name means?

We love asking that question, because we answering it!

Names can have such rich and insightful meanings that encourage, motivate and inspire.  My name, John, is a continual reminder that I am here for the blessing of others, whether it be to a stranger through a smile, to my children with a guiding hand, or to you, right here and right now through these unique name meaning gifts. Click the chat box on the lower right to ask me the meaning of your name!  It would be a joy to meet you and tell you what your name means! And in doing that, I’d be living up to the meaning of my name, John: Gift of God: Messenger with Good News.


I hope the name meaning gifts you find on this website will encourage and inspire you and those you're buying them for. You can put any name (even unique ones) on any design for Framed Name Meaning Prints, Coffee Mugs, Keepsake NameBoxes, or our one-of-a-kind WidePlaques! Each Name Gift includes the origin, cultural meaning, Life meaning, and a hand-picked Bible verse that connects with the meaning.   If you'd like to know what a name means, click the chat button on the lower right and we'll let you know!

name research booksName Meaning Research

How do we research a name to find an encouraging meaning?

At CrossTimber, we carefully research the historical or cultural origins of each name with our bookshelf full of name meaning books.  We'll also turn to electronic resources, like Hitchcock's Bible Names, and www.BehindTheName.com.


After the academic side is done, we always look for the most encouraging, positive aspects of a name's meaning, and see how it can be applied to a person's character and personality in a Biblical way.  Click here for a detailed explanation of our research process, or read some great examples on our NameStories page, which is a collection of inspirational histories behind the meaning of a name.

For more information on how we research, see the links below, or click the chat box on the lower right to ask us what your name -or any name- means!

You're also welcome to call us at 888-763-2646.

The Value in a Name Meaning
Our Origin & Meaning Research
Are there Christian Meanings for names not in the Bible?  (Yes)


Names of God research and storiesNames of God

The God of the Bible has many names given to Him by man, and One Name above all others, never given, always His.

We are thrilled to finally publish some of the many many stories and histories on the Names of God. Name Meaning Gifts may be my business and ministry, but my passion is to glorify The Name of God, and I love to write about the many insights and applications that His name has on our lives today.


We have a beautiful collection of plaques designed to reveal aspects of God's identity and His many names.  Browse our Names Of God framed artwork here.  The names of God art makes a wonderful gift for pastors and those in need of encouragement.


If you have a story to tell about a name that meant a lot to you, please contact us and share your story through our website.  Thank you!
