    Naming after Zippora - this is tough! Please help!

    Hi berries, If I have a daughter I'd really like to name her in honor of my grandmother, Zippora (which means bird in Hebrew). In Russian, she went by Fenia. Here are the names I've come up with so far:

    Faye
    Flora
    Zora (nn Zoey)
    Yona (means dove)
    Merel (means blackbird in Dutch)
    Aya (means hawk)

    What are your thoughts on any or all of these?

    I don't like any of the other bird names other than the ones above, so that leaves "Z" or "F" names.

    Thanks!!

    I like Zora. I think the nn Zoey is cute- plus, the name Zippora HAS Zora amongst the letters.
    I also am a fan of the name Zola, like the little girl on Grey's Anatomy. :]

    Do you know Zora, spelled Zora, means dawn in Croatian and Serbian?


    I vote for Merel (it's was on my list, it's beautiful), Aya and Zora. I like Flora and Faye.

    Are you not allowed to use Zippora or Fenia to honour your grandmother? Or maybe you just don't like the names themselves? I like Faye and Flora from your list.
    All the best,
