The third son of Jacob and Leah, the prophet Levi counted Moses and Aaron among his descendants in the Levite tribe. In the New Testament, Levi was the original name of Matthew. Levi is fast approaching a popularity it has not enjoyed since the late 1880s and will only continue to rise now that Matthew McConaughey has chosen the name for his son.
