I've got a beautiful squishy new baby - she has a first name, beginning with the letter B, my dh's brother is Robert Saul, but called Saul by everyone. What is the female version of Saul? Is it Sally? I'm intereste dto know if anyone has any suggestions for a middle name that tips its hat to Saul.

Ta muchly.

Congratulations grin

I don't think Sally has got anything to do with Saul.

I'm not sure there is a female version of Saul. You could go for a name associated with Saul e.g. his wife or daughters? They're all a bit 'out there' though; Ahinoam, Merab or Michal?

How about Sorrell? Not the female version of Saul but similar-ish?

thanks for you reply! i dont think there is a female version of saul either, i think i'm clutching at straws!

What about paula or paulina? Not because it rhymes, I'm thinking of st Paul who was originally called Saul. I think (I am
not religious but am sure i was taught this at some point)

Saul was the original name of the Apostle Paul.

So you can have Paula, Pauline, Paulette, Paulina.

Also Sona, which means Prayer. Saul means prayed for.

How about Sula? I knew a little girl with the name once (pronounced Soo Luh) thought it was pretty .

Errrr so sorry to do this to you, but just so you know Sula is a rude word in an Eastern European language (penis)

Sula is also a brand of sugar free sweets.

I went to school with a Sari. In some versions of the bible it was the name of Abraham's wife.

'Saula' is a real, but rare, name. There was actually a St Saula.

Shaula.

I used to work with a (young) woman called Soula - still pronounced Soo-luh. It probably looks closer to Saul, too.

Her Mum gave her the name because of some Greek connection, but I can't remember the details.

It's nice. And circum-navigates the penis thing if you're worried about Sula. wink
