Jesus called James and John, Boanerges, which meant "sons of thunder" (Mark 3:17) - probably a reference to their bold and zealous personality - illustrated by a later incident in which they wanted to "call down fire from heaven" to destroy the people of a Samaritan village who had refused to allow Jesus and His apostles to pass through on their way to Jerusalem (Luke 9:51-56).

Boanerges is literally the sons of thunder. I use that name in honor of my two wonderful Christian sons.
