Unusual Reformation names...
Augusta (For St Augustine, since Luther was an Augustinian monk)
Clea (like the word "cleave" - to split, as in the Church)
Magdalena (Luther's daughter was named Magdalena, and of course there's Mary M.)
Salvia (well, it's a botanical name -sage- but from the same Latin root as "salvation")
Sybille (like Sybille of Cleves, married to Johann Friedrich, supporter of the Reformation... there's a neat Cranach painting of her with one raised eyebrow. The name means "prophetess.")
Calvine or Calvina...
Clare to me has a very Reformation feeling, for some reason. Perhaps as a double-barrelled name?

Bethany (home of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus, said to be a place to care for the sick, and the place where Jesus ascended)
Jubilee (sacred year for freedom, pardon from debt and slavery, fascinating function of "God's economics")
Selah (related to the Psalms, perhaps a pause for musical interlude)
Dinah "God will judge"
Ammi "my people"
Ruth "compassionate friend"
Micaiah "who is like God?"
Phoebe (deacon/servant mentioned by Paul in the NT)
