How many people do you know who are named Sylvester? I can think of two. To be truthful, one of them is a cat. I can only think of one other person named Sylvester, and he disliked his name so much that he never used it.
Thanks to the work of Randal S. Olson, I learned something new about my name last night. I discovered that in the year I was born, there were 6,286 other people who were also named Stanley. The good thing is that 4,963 of us are still alive.
There is really no significance to my name; however, there is a name that is incredibly important:
- Philippians 2:9-11: God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow . . . and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
- Acts 4:12: There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people, and we must be saved by it.
