    Beyond Rachel, Leah & Sarah---underused Biblical girl names?

    Any scholars here with good Biblical name suggestions for a girl? I'm not a fan of Ruth, I am a little warm on Esther- but I know there are some great unknown names out there! Lay them on me!

    Adah (ah-dah)
    Keturah
    Keziah
    Jerusha
    Mahala
    Shifra

    And better known but still more infrequent than the names above
    Eve
    Mara
    Michal
    Miriam
    Naomi
    Sarai
    Tabitha

    Yael is my favorite girl's name. It's the Hebrew form of Jael and pronounced Yi-el. I also think Rahab is a strong and beautiful Biblical name. I'm not a biblical scholar, but I've had a year of Hebrew and working on my MDiv degree
