Ancient Names

Setting: Around the year 30 A.D., assorted places but predominantly the Middle East.

Searched: "aramaic names," "latin names," "hebrew names," "ancient greek names."  I've also poked around on some baby-name websites.

I'm constructing backstories for some very old characters, and I've realized that their names in modern times don't exist in the first century.  So, now I'm looking for names that have similar meanings.  I'm looking for names in a language that would have been in use almost two millenia ago: Aramaic, Hebrew, Latin, Greek, etc.  I need names for the following meanings:

"king of nations"
"protection"
"famous"

Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Edit: All the characters in question are male.  Sorry; I should've mentioned that.
