I love Dinah. I think it's very underused and since it is a variation of my own name, I like to see love for it!
Keziah would be my next choice for a girl.
Ezekiel is a HUGE love of mine, and if I didn't already know a little boy named this it would be on my own list. I think it goes very well with Cyrus.
I also like Abram because I love the nn Bram.Mi corazón

For girls, I know a girl who pronounces it "Zeh-zeye-a" and another girl who prounces it "Keh-zjha" (kinda like Kesha). I love Zara and Magdala (beautiful!).
Other unique biblical girl names of girls I know:
Myra (place name)
Nila (similar to Nile)
Two girls I know have "interjection/praise names"
I have also like Naama (Nay-ah-ma) too, definitely different There were a few Naama's in the OT.
Boys names: Love Ezekiel and Ezra (definitely not girly at all).
Also love (but not most people's preference:
Malachy (irish version of Malachi)No Reserves. No Retreats. No Regrets.

Hey you- thanks for pointing me here. I would have missed it.
I'm still loving Dinah for a litle sister to Cy. "Di and Cy" may be a bit too much though. Keziah worries me slightly because I feel like it might not be very approachable or well known enough. I think I like Keturah better, but Kezzie or Zia are cute nicknames. I also like that Keziah is related to the cassia plant/cinnamon! cute. Magdala nn Maggie feels like a natural fit though too. It's you favorite name and I think you should push it with T more because of that.
I love all your boy choices and alot of them are some of my favs, but just not names we can use (ha! like we can ever produce a boy...) in our sibset. Ezekiel "Zeke" is my favorite and I really love how Y and Z would be the 2nd letter in the boys names. I know that is a lame reason to pick a name, but you know me and my OCDish stuff. I guess Abel might be one I remove from the list because it sounds very wordy to me. I do love the suggestion of Levi and I don't think it's too common.
Others to consider:
See ya soon!Wife to one great guy
Mama to six pretty ladies: Scarlett (12), Penelope (9), Alice (4), Fiona (4), Lucille (2) & Coraline (2)
& 4 angels gone before us: Christian (7 wks), Amos (6 wks), Naomi (16.5 wks), & Hosanna (6 wks)
