    Girl Bible Names

    My husband and I fell in love with the name Lydia. We have been calling our baby (due in August) by the name for 2 months but then we found out that my brother and his wife are calling their daughter (also due in August) Lydia as well. We want to change the name but stick with a Bible name. Any suggestions?

    Ohh, Lydia would have been lovely! That's too bad. I love that she was the first European Christian.

    Erm, what about:

    Rachel
    Eve
    Susanna
    Tabitha
    Hannah
    Miriam (not my thing, really, but Miri is adorable!)
    Mary
    Elizabeth
    Ruth
    Naomi
    Dorcas
    Anna

    Would you consider variants, like Lillian and Isabelle for Elizabeth, or Annabel for Anna, etc.?

    Good luck!

    Thanks How would you pronounce Miri? I think Miriam sounds like an older name but maybe if the nickname is cute. We are considering variants. One possible choice we are thinking of us Elisa (short for Elizabeth). I love Ruth but I also have a niece with that name.

    Leah could be a similar alternative. Leah is a beautiful name! My personal favorite Biblical names for girls are: Miriam, Eve, Susannah, Martha, Ruth, Magdalene, and any form of Mary.
