Matthew

Matthew is the English spelling of the Hebrew name Matityahu. It was first named to Matthew the Evangelist, who was one of the twelve disciples and credited with the authorship of the Gospel of Matthew. The name Matthew has been translated into the Irish name Maitiu. Matthew has also been used as an anglicisation of the native Irish name Mahon, meaning bear. Matt is the most common hypocoristic form of the name in English.
