We've decided on a girl's name for our next baby... arriving in just a few weeks. But we want a middle name with a Biblical link if possible. Something girly, pretty and meaningful. DH1 has Eden Grace as middle names.

We like names like Rose, Ophelia, Lydia (I know this is Biblical, but it doesn't go with the first name), Helena, Ines, Florence. So anything similar would be great. Ideally a long (maybe 4 syllable) name would work well with the first & surname.

Abigail - third wife of King David.
Bethany - home of Lazarus and his sisters Mary and Martha
Claudia - mentioned briefly in the NT
Delilah - lover of Samson
Esther - Jewish wife of the king of Persia
Hannah - mother of the prophet Samuel
Jemima - oldest of the three daughters of Job in the Old Testament
Leah - first wife of Jacob
Martha - sister of Lazarus and Mary of Bethany

We almost used Tabitha last time, so that's an option.
Jemima and Martha are good too. I like the sound of Delilah, but sadly she was such a nasty character I don't think I could use it.

I still think Delilah is cool.
