Gemaliel/Gamaliel #unitedkingdom #names

Gamaliel is a name born by several prominent rabbis during the Roman period, First-Fourth centuries, and is thus certainly not of Germanic origin.  One of them is mentioned in the Book of Acts in the New Testament.
 
The Hebrew roots are GML, which means either ripen or reward, and "El," one of the names Jews use for G-d.
