The guess the name of the Samsung Galaxy S3 phone competition from Monday was somewhat buried in the review. It is one of the least entered megaprize competitions I’ve run. This is possibly because it was buried in a long review of the Galaxy S3 or maybe the chances of winning were slim becasue there are lots and lots of names it could have been.
I’m going to assume both so this is a short post just to highlight the competition. Then I’m going to narrow down the possibilities as to what the name might be by telling you that it has biblical associations.
I’m not going to limit the number of prizes here. The competition is going to run all day and anyone who gets the name right gets a prize. There is also going to be a further prize for anyone who comes up with the most unusual biblical name (I’m the judge and my decision is final1).
This competition is also open to Timico staff. If they turn their noses at the mug then I’ll think of a different internal prize but it’s a mug for everyone else. Btw the one answer I did get on the previous post was “Tref’s phone”. Although it is the name displayed on the locked screen I am after the bluetooth name which is different.
PS if you have already won a mug in a previous competition I can find a different prize for you.
1 though it isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that I can be bribed on this one but the bribe is almost certainly going to have to be for a lot more than the prize is worth.

Habbakuk, Jehosaphat, Jeroboam?
Unusual biblical name – Zelophehad
My GS3 is called Gertrude so I will guess Delilah for yours!
How about calling it ‘iPhone6’ – it’ll be the nearest it gets to being groundbreaking… 😉

I like some of these answers but I’m not telling you whether any of them are right yet. I note they are mostly, if not all, Old Testament.
I asked my Dad…. so really can’t take credit for these….
Yakman, meaning powerful, godly essence, almighty.
Yehoyada, God knew.
Yashua or Eashoa, the Aramaic name of Jesus
Yahweh, Yahwe, Yahawe, Yahave, Yehovah, Jehova or Jehovah, spellings of the pronunciation of YHVH
Yehezkel, variant of Ezekiel
Yoav, (Joab) – “The Lord is father”
Yuval, “fresh water stream”, “Water source that feeds into a stream”, Yuval is the first musician and artist mentioned in the Bible
ps – I’ve already got a Timico mug, but my Dad’s not got one 🙂
Abednego – meaning shining
Fwiw did you know that I come from a long line of Baptist ministers. One of my cousins, William Davies, was the first Welsh Baptist missionary to die in Africa – Grahamstown.
I plan to write it up before I leave this planet for other destinations.
Keep the suggestions coming.
Just scanning through this lot again btw and we do indeed have a right answer in amongst the dross:) There is still a chance for others to get it right and indeed to claim the tref’s pick for the most unusual though Rob’s scatter gun effort has probable covered a fair proportion of the available candidates.
Note I don’t know that last point for sure as it is some time since I read the book.
Oooh Kirst. I’m going to break ranks on this one and tell you that God is definitely not the answer. Mind you would have allowed me to say “I had God on the phone” which might have been amusing.
Its not an iphone … ?
My HTC is called “99” because the signal is always flaky,
How do you know that Moses wore a wig? Because sometimes he walked with Aaron, and sometimes he didn’t.
I often hear people calling them Jesus, especially when they can’t get a connection. Taking the Lords name in vain and all that jazz.
Remind me to tell you the Jesus, Moses and Tiger Woods story sometime.
My favourite bible name has always been Ichabod, in fact if I write it i-chabod it sounds like a wireless electronic device.
Firstly I thought Samson but obvious. Then I thought how you think and my answer would be Jezebel
originally thought Samson, but too obvious. Then thought about you and decided on Jezebel!
My bid is for Onesimus…because he has become useful to you and to me( Philemon 1 v 11) and maybe Mephibosheth for most unusual…
Never won a mug, but I came close 😀
Knowing you as I do father, I would suggest that N’Dhabiningy has at least made the shortlist.
I don’t recall the name N’Dhabiningy in the bible but you almost certainly know better than me 🙂
Arashell it means strong and protected.
Ok guys good competition. The phone’s name is John so Cyberdoyle wins the mug. Well done. I think she was the only one to get it but will check again.
I’m also going to award the unusual name prize but that will have to wait until tomorrow as I’m currently watching the footy.
