Meaning:
The name came from the Hebrew word דוד (spelling "dvd" in Latin). In the Old Testament, David was the second and greatest king of Israel. He was regarded as a righteous king, a lauded warrior who defeated a giant Philistine Goliath with a stone and a poet who was thought to have composed many of the Psalms. Though David was widely praised, he did not lead a faultless life. Captivated by the beauty of Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah the Hittite, David sent Uriah to the battlefield so as to hide his adultery, and he married Bathsheba upon Uriah’s death. However, David later on repented when the prophet Nathan confronted his sin. Jesus is believed to be descended from David’s bloodline.
