    Would you use Nehemiah or Elijah for a girl?

    For some reason, my dear husband and I both enjoy these names, typical for a boy...as a girl's name. Would you use it? Would people think it is too masculine? Opinions? Thoughts? suggestions?
    Baby number 4 coming...thinking of boy/girl/unisex names!
    Give us your thoughts!


    Edit:

    We like Nehemiah, nickname Miah, like Mya or My. Someone also suggested Nia, kind of like that too.

    I know someone who named their girl Elisha. I prefer Elisha to Elijah which seems too much like a boys name. Nehemiah...I would choose that over Elijah. It actually is a very sweet name and underused even for boys.

    No. Just no. I'm still mad about Elisha and Shiloh being used on girls. Please don't take another amazing biblical boy's name and turn it unisex.

    No, I wouldn't. They're both boys' names and, especially with Elijah, your daughter would get mistaken for a boy all the time.

    Here are some similar names:

    Atarah
    Athaliah
    Peninnah
    Keziah
