Need something slightly Jewish, not for me, for a friend. What do you think?

Esther would be lovely.

I like Naomi (have one) and also like Ruth.

Another vote for Rachel

(although your friend would need to make sure that, when a young man comes along wanting to marry Rachel, her DH doesn't do a switch for Leah at the last minute...)

I would probably go for Rebecca. Does it have to be only old testament names? when i had my ds1 i was opposite some v traditional jewish people in the ward (i think orthadox jew) and they went for a flower name i think it was dahlia!

Dalia is a Hebrew name meaning flower, which is lovely.

Judith also lovely.
Dafna
Sara
Shifra (my favourite)

Not biblical but Jessica come to mind...!

LadyCressida Mon 06-Dec-10 15:30:16

I immediately thought Esther

Rachel might not be fair on the older sister because wasn't she is the pretty one whereas no-one wanted Leah...
