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.

Loads of really lovely suggestions.
Penelopeportrait , yep you'd be right... How can we be happily married when we have such opposite taste and opinions?
theherringscreams Athaliah is more my cup of tea and DH didn't pull a face, so we might have a name for our short list! Thanks
Do you think it is too similar to Elijah though?
Thanks all for your suggestions.

I know a little girl called Zillah pronounced z-eye-la...it's really pretty and rhymes well with Elijah!

It isn't Biblical, but what about Bethia, which is the English form of the Hebrew name Batya? It means 'daughter of God'.
