In the past, many if not most names were in the Bible. Sometimes it's disguised by coming from a non-English language, but such names only help if they become typical of a family line and thus an indicator. Now if this were a name I found in my genealogy I'd think of my ggaunt who married a Long and lived in central, Ohio where a town in Morrow County is Mt. Gilead. The family would then have moved to Indiana. But I'm just making that up. But that sort of possible connection sometimes works. However, a nwme being found in the Bible doesn't usually help, per se.
