I'm trying to honor someone who's middle name is Nathan. He truly is a gift from God to me and I'd love to honor him. Nathan means "Gift from God", so I want a name with the same meaning. I've found Jonathan, which means "Gift from God". Also, I know Theodore also shares that meaning, but I always think of Alvin and the Chipmunks... <3 Thanks guys! :-)

Are you wanting only boy names? Because there's a fair share of girl names with that meaning, too :)

Dorothy
Thea
Jane
Godiva - probably too chocolate to use, but still thought I'd share it

Zebedee // Zebediah // Zeb
Thaddeus
Tad
Matthew
Matteo
Bogdan

Bogdan or Bohdan is a Slavic masculine name that also appears in Romania and the Republic of Moldova. It is derived from the Slavic words "Bog/Boh", meaning "god", and "dan", meaning "given". The name appears to be an early calque from Byzantine Theodotus (Theodosius) with the same meaning.[1] The name is also used as a surname.

^^ from nameberry. I thought that was interesting, so I thought I'd share it.
