In the Bible, God calls Samuel, meaning “God has heard”. What would be the Hebrew for “servant heard”?
Samuel (in Hebrew, Shmuel) does not mean “God has heard”: whoever told you that may be thinking it’s spelled שמוע-אל, i.e. “Shmua-el”—but it’s not. The consonant ע (ayin) is missing, and it doesn’t go missing lightly.
