For instance, Jacob's name, (who stole the firstborn blessing from Esau) means "supplanter' or "trickster'. God later changed his name to Israel, which means "having power with God" or -"God's fighter" In the final book of the Bible one of the promises given to overcomers is a "new name" (Revelation 2:17).
