Jerusha This one sounds really odd to me I imagine a child would be teased like crazy for this name!
Junia Pretty, but people who aren't aware of the biblical connection might think you just changed June to make it unique.
Keren I know 2 girls named this, I think it's very pretty but they always get called Karen and they both hate it!
Vashti is it pronounced vash-ti? It sounds very Indian to me so I can't imagine it on someone who isn't Indian.
Priscilla Love! I think it's very pretty and classy except people may think of prissy when they first hear it.
Tamar Sounds too masculine for my tastes.
Salome I like this one it's cool and unique but I can't think of any good nicknames for it.
Eunice I don't like this one really it sounds outdated and unappealing.Just a 14 year old name lover.

Jerusha - my favorite on this list. It's so substantive and striking. It's the only one I would consider using.
Junia - I don't really care for any of the "June" names so this one doesn't have much appeal for me.
Keren - I'm not sure whether this should be pronounced like Karen or ka-REN; either way it's too much like Karen or Koran.
Vashti - This one is really exotic and I like it. Not enough to use, but I'd enjoy meeting a Vashti.
Priscilla - This one marginally makes the "classic" category. I wouldn't use it because of the "prissy" element, but still a sweet name I'd enjoy seeing.
Tamar - I don't like this one at all because it sounds too much like "tumor" or "to mar" to me. No.
Salome - Usable name but the namesake rules it out for me.
Eunice - I think this is ugly. I've only ever heard it pronounced YOU-niss.
I know/have known girls by these obscure Biblical names:
Tirzah (pronounced TEER-zuh)
Tikvah (prn TICK-vuh)
Havilah (prn HAVE-illah) (TWO of these age 2 and under!)
I believe the latter two are actually male names that only appear in geneaologies, and Havilah is also a place name in Genesis.
Jemimah is the obscure Biblical name I wish I could use; it still has a lot of negative baggage here in the U.S., which is really unfortunate. I also like Tzipporah but I only see that one really having appeal in the crowd that already likes things like Tirzah. Jochebed is a lady I admire very much, but unfortunately her name isn't very pretty in English. Sapphira is one that I think could garner a lot of admiration and widespread appeal, but her namesake is not admirable.
