    outside-the-box Christian names for a girl?

    I'd love to have some help brainstorming...

    We're expecting baby #5. We're conservative, Reformed Christians and wish to choose meaningful names that reflect our faith.

    So far, our two boys have uncommon, but not outlandish, Bible names. Both are in the top 1000, neither are in the top 100 (yet). Our older daughter has a rarely used botanical name with Biblical references. Our younger daughter has a rarely used Hebrew name that reflects on one of the Psalms. Both of their names are decidedly feminine. Neither are in the top 1000. I hesitate to share them on this forum for privacy reasons.

    Anyway, I'm having a really hard time coming up with a girl's name that we can agree on. We like Bible names, but I'm feeling pretty uninspired in that department right now. I love Hadassah--Esther's Hebrew name--but my husband doesn't. It would fit perfectly with our current sibset, I think, but he's already nixed it twice, so I'm pretty sure he'll shoot it down again.

    He's also not really into virtue names, except for as a middle name possibility. Virtue names are pretty common in our circles, so all but the most "out there" choices have lost their originality to me, anyway.

    We're really open to names from church history--particularly Reformation history--though (obviously) not looking for anything too Roman Catholic.

    I feel like I've read every baby name book and website that there is, but I know there has to be more out there. Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks in Advance!
