to name a person or thing, Acts 11:26 ; Romans 7:3 .

2. To cry to another for help; and hence, to pray. The first passage in the Old Testament in which we meet with this phrase, is Genesis 4:26 , where we read, "Then began men to call on the name of the Lord," or Jehovah; the meaning of which seems to be, that they then first began to worship him in public assemblies. In both the Old and New Testament, to call upon the name of the Lord, imports invoking the true God in prayer, with a confession that he is Jehovah, that is, with an acknowledgment of his essential and incommunicable attributes. In this view the phrase is applied to the worship of Christ.
