    Lesser known Biblical place names

    Hi there! I found a list of Biblical place names on Wiki and listed out the ones I thought would work as names. Some would no doubt be very bold. It started out as a girl name list but I think some of those might be better for boys. It's debatable. But I'm putting them here because I think they're mostly feminine.

    This is not an exhaustive list obviously. But I found some I wasn't aware of. I particularly like the Z names.

    Some of these may have unpleasant meanings or associations of which I'm not aware. Although I left out the obvious ones, like Gomorrah and Golgotha.

    Achaia
    Arbela
    Bethany
    Bethlehem - I've always thought this would make a lovely girls name
    Caria
    Cana
    Carmel
    Cilicia
    Chaldea
    Ebla
    Galilee
    Gethsemane - Pronounced geth-SEMM-uh-nee, I think it's quite nice
    India
    Jaffa
    Jericho - unisex? More for boys?
    Jerusalem - make fun if you want, I've always secretly loved this as a girls name. Nicknames include the adorable Ru and the witchy Salem.
    Jordan
    Kaska
    Kenya
    Laodicea
    Lycia - I believe pr. LI-see-uh, with a long I as in "rice"

    Mari
    Memphis
    Miriam
