The names Levi and Asher have made BuzzFeed’s top-10 baby male names for 2021, bringing the number of biblical boy names currently on the list to four.

Published on Thursday, the list had Mateo and Logan knocked off the top-10 list.

Levi currently holds the #6 spot, after previously placing at #24. Asher holds the #8 position, way up from #33, while Mateo and Logan hold #11 and #16, respectively.

Other biblical names on the boys’ list include Noah at #2 and Elijah at #4.

Noah of course refers to the tale of Noah’s Ark in the Book of Genesis; Elijah refers to the prophet in the Bible who defended God’s worship over that of the Canaanite deity Baal; Levi refers to the third son of Jacob and Leah, the founder of the Israelite tribe of Levi; and Asher is the son of Jacob and Zilpah, the founder of the tribe of Asher.
