A very long list of names for use in RPG's, what they mean in christian terms (Boys AND girls! yay!)

Ever wondered what your name in real life means? I mean... every name has a meaning ( I think ). HEre I go again with yet another article (Sweet, eh?) and this time its a listing of first name meanings (A-L).
