🔼The name Eubulus in the Bible

The name Eubulus occurs only once in the Bible. At the end of his second letter to Timothy, Paul conveys greetings from Eubulus. This letter was written in Rome, and that's probably were Eubulus lived. Eubulus is originally a Greek name and history tells of several famous men with that name, both BC and AD.

🔼Etymology of the name Eubulus

Eubulus is a Greek name, which consists of two elements. The first part comes from the familiar prefix ευ (eu), meaning good:

The second part of our name comes from the noun βουλη (boule), meaning will, purpose or intention:

Together these two elements form the common words ευβουλος (euboulos), meaning well-advised or prudent, and ευβουλια (euboulia), meaning good counsel, soundness of judgment or prudence.

Spelled slightly different, as ευβολος (eubolos), it means being lucky or having luck. As epithet of Zeus it appears as ευβουλευς (eubouleus) or ευβουλος (euboulos), meaning "he of good counsel".
