American actor Matthew McConaughey revealed on ABC’s “Good Morning America” the biblical significance behind his son Levi’s name.
The 47 year old actor whose son turned 9 years old this month revealed during the interview the inspiration for the naming his first son which he said came from his favorite Bible verse, Matthew 6:22.
The scripture reads, “If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.”., “We had talked about possibly Matthew, Jr. if he was a boy. And my favorite [verse] in the Bible is Matthew 6:22,” he said.
The actor who explained that Levi is another name for Matthew said the decision was later made to christian the boy “Levi”.
“Levi’s another name for Matthew in the Bible,” McConaughey said. “We find out he’s a boy when he’s born. You’re not thinking about the name, right? An hour later, the doctor comes up and he hands you that card to fill out: ‘Blank was born at 6:22 p.m.’ So we went, ‘It’s Levi.'”
