Lilith is Biblical folklore not literally in the Bible. I wouldn't have thought of it as directly comparable...?
Anyway my favourite girls' Bible names are:
Mara (A seperate Biblical person from Miriam or Mary but a related name)
New Testament I like:
I am not especially keen on Rachel but don't mind the Spanish Raquel or Hungarian Rahela. Since the Bible wasn't written in English...? I dunno how you'd feel about something like this.
I also like feminizations of many male Biblical personages. I don't know if that would work for you. My religious name (not legal name... just used in services and so on) is Yosefa Tzippa Leah... Leah was a biblical woman, Yosefa is a spin on Yosef (Joseph). And Tzippa in the middle there is a diminutive of Tzipporah, rather like being called Sue instead of Susannah.
