English term or phrase: broad shouldered
I have recently had a son, and during birth he got stuck due to his broad shoulders. I like biblical names, and was wondering if there was a Hebrew name that meant 'broad shouldered' or something similar. If not, then something like 'steadfast' or 'solid'

Explanation:
This is 'broad shouldered' in Hebrew, but this is NOT a name! In the situation you describe, I think a suitable name will be Eytan (or Eythan), which means 'steadfast' in Hebrew, and is also a very nice name.
Congratulations!
