Gideon is a Hebrew origin and is mostly referred to as a boy's name. It generally means "feller of trees; powerful warrior and also Destroyer." In the Bible Gideon relates to Jerubbaal, a hero as well as a judge of Israel who has won numerous battles, with his shrewd and skilful planning and most of all with his faith. He also gave the title of 'a man of faith' in the Epistle to the Hebrews. The four different forms of Gideon are Gideone, Gidi, Gidon and Hedeon.
