I love Ari. The only one I don't love from your boys list is Eden, only because I mostly know girls with that name. Zeb?

For girls, I agree they are less inspiringly. Miriam, Sarah, Hannah, Rebekah, Rachel, Rhoda, Ruth? I like Zillah (DH said no). Hephzibah?

Thank you -

So I like Inna and Zeb. Quite like Zillah too.

Rachel, Sarah, Even, Hannah, Miriam etc. are all out.

Has to be more Hebrew / Jewish than English.

Do you mean Yiddish? Because those are all Old Testament names you've rejected, you surely can't get more Jewish than that!

Yes, I know, Rachel, Sarah etc. are out for other reasons (not, because they aren't Jewish).

I was referring to the longer list that has a lot of English names within it.

user1473282350 Mon 12-Sep-16 20:13:34

Sophronia - thank you! Love a lot of those!

For girls, we have a (jewish) Liron ("Lee-ron") in the family. I think it's lovely. We also have a Noa, which I love as a girl's name.

Isaac, Miriam, Naomi, Noah.

I may be prejudiced wink

Take a look at kveller's list of baby names, they have a lot of lovely contemporary Israeli ones. I like Yael or Shoshana for a girl, myself.

Mermaid36 Mon 12-Sep-16 21:49:19

I really like Esther for a girl
