Mathew is a boy's name of Hebrew origin and a variation of the more well-known spelling, Matthew. The name has a rich history and significant meaning, deriving from the Hebrew name "Matityahu," which means "gift of God". The name has been popular for centuries due to its connections to Matthew the Apostle in the Christian New Testament Bible and its softened but regal sound. The origin of the name Mathew can be traced back to the Hebrew name "Matityahu," which was transliterated into Greek as "Mattathias" and subsequently shortened to "Matthaios". This Hebrew name was Latinized as "Matthaeus," which eventually became "Matthew" in English. The name's popularity is also attributed to its versatility, with variations such as "Matthieu," "Mathieu," and "Matheu" being used in different cultures.
