In the book of Daniel
in the Old Testament
, we are told of three youth
taken by Nebuchadnezzar II
after his first seige of Jerusalem
. They are commonly known by the names given to them by their Babylonian captors: Shadrach
, and Abednego
. Their Hebrew
names were respectively: Hannaniah, Mishael, and Azariah.
Oddly, Daniel was also given a name by the Babylonians, but few remember that name: Belteshazzar.
