Christmas Association
Ebenezer Scrooge is the miserably character from Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. Throughout the story he is nasty and mean and everything that being in the Christmas spirit is not making people having a bad association with the name. Towards the end of the story he turns around and is a good character.

As A Name
Ebenezer means stone of help in Hebrew. Eben would make a great nickname for it and gives it a softer feel. Only 49 babies were given the name in 2015, which I am not surprised about. I feel like people see this as an old man name still. Ebenezer also has a biblical connection. It is the place where a stone was set up by Samuel to mark his victory over the Phillistienes. So you get both the Christmas connection and a biblical connection in one name!

Do you think Ebenezer is a usable name?
