Meaning of the baby name SHEMUEL.

  

SHEMUEL (שְׁמוּאֵל).  A contracted form of Hebrew Shemuael, meaning "heard of God," from shama and shamea "to hear," and El = "God." (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

... Among the spies Simeon was represented by Shaphat son of Hori, i.e. Horite, a name which perhaps, like the "Canaanitess" of the earlier list, reveals a trace of the lax tendencies which made the Simeonites an easy prey to the licentious rites ofo Peor, and ultimately destroyed the permanence of the tribe.  At the division of the land his representative was Shemuel, son of Ammihud. (A Dictionary of the Bible: Red-Sea Zuzims, Smith, 1863).
