Names in the Bible

Full List of Names in the Bible [KJV Edition]

By BibleAsk (version 1.0)


After discovering that there wasn’t a single resource containing a comprehensive list of all the unique names found in the Bible, BibleAsk has embarked on a project to compile such a list. Utilizing the King James Version of the Bible as a primary reference, BibleAsk now provides a comprehensive catalog of all the names mentioned throughout the biblical text.


The aim of the study was twofold: to identify and categorize all the singular names mentioned in the Bible. Given the absence of such a comprehensive compilation online, the task was undertaken to fill this gap.

How many names are there in the Bible?

In the King James Version Bible, there are 3,397 unique names in the Bible. Of which, 1,967 names are for people,1,051 names are for places, 315 names to describe groups of people/nations, and 85 names of other things like months, rivers, pagan gods, etc.
Note. From the names, there are some cross over where the same name was used in more than one category (ie. Name and Place).
