Name for today- Ezekiel

Origin of the name Ezekiel:

Derived from the Greek Iezekiēl, a name derived from the Hebrew yehezq’ēl (God strengthens). The name is borne in the Bible by a 6th century B.C. Hebrew prophet whose ministry lasted more than twenty-three years. His prophecies are recorded in the Old Testament book of Ezekiel.
