There’s just something so cool about the ever-fashionable Stephen. Maybe it’s the rebellious “ph” spelling, or his inspiring backstory. In the New Testament, Stephen was an inspired leader of the church. A speech of his stirred an angry mob and he was stoned, becoming Christianity’s first martyr. Although the name’s taken the slightlest dip in popularity in recent years, this is a name that’s not going anywhere.
