Here’s a link to a nice survey (free) by Lawrence Mykytiuk (a fellow UW-Madison grad). The survey material at the link is based on an article by Mykytiuk published in Biblical Archaeology Review (the full article is not free). All fifty names are pre-New Testament figures.

[NOTE: for some reason the link is not showing up in the Naked Bible blog, but it’s there at the Paleobabble blog. We’ll get that fixed.]
