Are questions of the form "What is the origin of name X" considered on-topic, since many of those names originated from Tanach and Shas?

In general, things are not on-topic only because their answers may have to do with Judaism. Personally, I think a better question is: "Are questions of the form 'What is the origin of name X' considered on-topic, since naming a baby is an act of Judaism?"– msh210 ModAug 8, 2016 at 18:48
