I'm a bit stuck for ideas really, got a boys list as long as your arm.
I would love an unusual biblical girls name, unfortunately my boring conservative DH will not agree to something really different.
I've trawled the usual baby name websites to no avail....
All suggestions welcome, thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions, sadly several, including Bathsheba and Hephzibah, have been vetoed by DH. I like Tabitha, Martha and Phoebe but there seems to be quite a lt of new babies locally with those names. Keep them coming, because she going to need a name! smile

Miriam is awesome. The Bible says she was one of the leaders of Isreal
alongside Moses and Aaron. I particularly like that!!
