Beautiful timeless name! I love it.

I love it. I don't think it's boring at all; it's strong and classy.

I love it, but then I think there's beauty and interest in simpler things. Some says it's boring but what's an exciting name? I think the fact that it is less common, easy to spell and pronounce and has a very long history make it much more attractive to me than the overly frilly, girly names that are popular at the moment.

It fits the bill for a name that suits a baby, child, teen and adult and has nice nn. I put it in the same camp as Mary, Rose, Anne/a, Beth, Kate, Tess, Ellen, Jane if that's any help.

Bit late to the party, but I like it too, if that helps grin

I disagree that it's easy to pronounce. Someone has already mentioned the tendency of -th to be pronounced like -f.

Add to that the not uncommon inability to say R, and you may end up with Woof shock

Awful, boring, old fashioned, really meh and biblical

I love it. She is my all time favourite woman from the Bible. I love her story. Immensely strong, kind woman. Great name.
