What could be a sensible interpretation of Genesis 2:19?
In Genesis 2:19 God brought all the animals and the birds to Adam for him to name them. What Adam would call it would become its name, at least permanently. My questions are:
1. Why could God should have done that? What might could be his purpose?
2. If ever Adam was able to name them all, that was before the construction of the tower of Babel, where Adam and all his generations down were unilingual or speak only one language. After the Babel incident, God confused the people's language and made them multilingual, reason why the tower project was not finished and completed. What have then become to the names given to the animals and the birds?
3. It even did not make sense today, where scientists gave scientific names to animals and birds for purposes of uniformity and convenience in their research and study without reference to Genesis 2:19. Is God telling us something significant from Genesis 2:19?
