> 2) Was it common for pagan parents to name their children
after pagan gods?
> 3) Are their other New Testament names that contain the name
of a pagan god?
Besides the names mentioned by R.J.Petry and C.W.Conrad, there
are the names
hERMHS (or hERMAS)
that might be derived from pagan deities.
In the OT we have names derived from "Jahwe" (see C.W.Conrad),
but also from "Baal", as
Eshbaal, Ethbaal, Jerubbaal, Meribbaal, Baalis.
