Samuel Livermore, who was of the Federalist majority, was appointed as President Pro Tempore in 1796 and would serve throughout the rest of the year. His name meaning is speaking to the communion that Adam had with God in the Garden.

 

Samuel comes from the Hebrew name שמואל ‘shemuel’ which means God hears or heard God. This points to the relationship between God and Adam in the Garden in which they would communicate during the ‘cool of the day’ (Genesis 3:8).

Livermore is an Old English word referring to a body of water, in particular the reeds on the shores of a lake. This points to the Garden which was ‘Adam’s possession’ and the river which came forth from this Garden (Genesis 2:10-14). The Hebrew word for reed is קנה ‘qaneh’ which also means a possession.
