Biblical/Welsh girls names

There's lots of boys names we like but we've always struggled to agree on girls names. Ideally I'd like a biblical name that could have a Welsh nickname. Just to over-complicate matters, we've ruled out anything starting with D, G, A, M, B or J for various reasons.

Are there any names that fit our criteria, or am I just going to have to give up on the Welsh bit?!

Would a Welsh version of a Biblical name work?

Marc
Luc
Phylip
Tomos
Steffan
Ifan
Dafydd/Dai
Elis

Sorry, forgot to eliminate those which start with wrong letters (Marc, Dafydd)

Does the OP not want a girls name? Or am I reading wrong?
No help.. but my favorite Welsh ( i think) name is Delyth.
Ester and Rebekah are lovely biblical names.. but not Welsh as far as i know?!

Efa is the Welsh version of Eve.

Tirion is nice - there is a prayer "Iesu Tirion"

Non was St David's mother

I'm very pleased you like Delyth Gwen - that's my name!

Siwan (shoe-ann) or Catrin are two of my favourites.
Also Ffion, Haf, Angharad, Llunos, and Elin.

Do you want a girl's name OP or...?

Susannah/Suzanne is my favourite biblical girl's name.

But I also like Rachel and Sara/Zara. I don't know anything about Welsh names (not from the UK), so I probably can't contribute to this thread. But now I've already started to comment and don't want to delete it. Ooops. Soorrry blush

It's lovely Jemima. I've always liked it. ( And I'd secretly like to be Welsh hence my user name!) Sorry OP for derailing.
