Here are a few suggestions that just pop into my head

Girls
Keren, daughter of Job
Michal, first wife of king david
Damaris, woman from the book of Acts (I love this one)
Miriam, sister of moses and aaron

Boys
Seth, son of adam and eve
Asa, one of the kings
Lemuel (nn Lem or Lemmy) proverbs31
Also i thing Perez is nice but from a rather ick story.

Love Miriam and Seth.

Asa is a common girls' name in Scandinavia and Michal sounds too close too Michael to be used for a girl in the UK.

Damaris is lovely.

Solomon is a great one that isn't common in the UK. Love Solly or Sol.

Asa is lovely! Also love the name seth....would have chosen it myself if it wasnt for my partners name being seth caleb ( very biblical indeed )

Miriam is really nice! I have met a few persian women with this name, though and they were not christian...

I have a Miriam but wouldn't describe her name as 'non-traditional', perhaps 'lesser used'...?
