Christmas Association
In the story of Jesus birth many people come to visit him. Some of them were shepherd who had been in the fields with there sheep when an angel came to them to tell them about Jesus being born. After visiting and seeing Jesus, the shepherds then went out and spread the word of his birth. They are a major part of the Christmas story that can be overlooked at times.

As A Name
Shepherd is an English surname meaning sheepherder. It is seen more as a surname but I am noticing more and more people liking surnames as first names. I have had this name in my top 10 favorite names for so long now. I adore the nickname Shep and the calming feeling of sheep that are associated with the name. In 2015 an almost shocking number of baby boys were given the name, 173!
