Nathaniel is a Hebrew boy's name that means "God has given". The name is derived from the Hebrew name Netan'el, which consists of two components: "Netan," meaning "gift," and "El," meaning God. This name appears in the Old and New Testaments of the Christian Bible, as well as the Jewish Bible, where it is spelled as Nathanael. The name Nathaniel has an illustrious history and has been borne by several notable figures in both the Old and New Testament, such as a prince of the tribe of Issachar and a sibling of King David in the Hebrew Bible, and one of Jesus Christ's earliest followers in the Gospel of John. The name has also been used by famous writers, such as Nathaniel Hawthorne and Nathanael (born Nathan) West, and by Revolutionary General Nathanael Greene.
