"a Biblical name"
St. Peter by Rubens
Public DomainSt. Peter by Rubens

There are many Simons in the Bible, from Simeon the second son of Jacob and Leah (Book of Genesis) to Simon Peter (St. Peter, one of the twelve apostles), Simon the Zealot (another of the apostles), and Simon Magus (an early Christian writer mentioned in the Book of Acts). The narrator probably does not mean to refer to any particular one -- just to say that it’s a “good Biblical name.”

This portrait of St. Peter as Pope holding the palladium and the keys to heaven was painted by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640).
