I was wondering if anyone could help. I have been searching for a girl name that means redemption (or something similar) and everything I have found online sounds too different/foreign.

Can anyone help me think something else? I think I will need to think outside the box for this and am not too sure where to start.

But I don't want something that sounds too unusual.

Though actually, because of her, her mother-in-law was also redeemed?

Ruth's MIL was Naomi, I think.

How about Esther? She also risked her life to redeem her people. The name means 'myrtle' which is a plant associated with rebirth, it springs back to life when cut down, and with love/marriage. Alternative meaning is 'star'

Redemption......'Red' for short?

Natasha/ Natalya/ Natalie has associations with Christmas/ birth of Jesus and so could be said to have associations with redemption?

What about Christina? Isabelle + variants means consecrated to God - could be taken as accepted by God/redeemed by accepting God? Simone/Simona mean God is heard - I am redeemed?
