According to the bible, Adam is the name of the first man on earth. The name derives from adama, which means ‘earth’ in Hebrew. God supposedly fashioned the first humans from earth and clay, breathing life into them. In Hebrew, it generically means ‘man’, and hence is not widely adopted as a given name.

Stories Featuring This Name

The most famous story involving Adam is the biblical story from the Book of Genesis. God created Adam (and later, Eve as his companion) and gave him dominion over all of His creations, allowing him to make his home in the Garden of Eden. God’s only rule was that neither Adam or Eve would eat from the Tree of Knowledge. Of course, we know that Adam and Eve break that rule and they are tricked by Satan in a serpent’s disguise into eating an apple from the tree, thus banishing all of mankind from Eden and causing them to fall to Earth.

Adam is also a popular name in soap operas, and there is an Adam on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Emmerdale,” “EastEnders,” “All My Children,” “Hollyoaks,” and “Neighbours.”
