    help me find a hebrew/biblical name for my daughter! :)

    This is tricky, because her last name will be Dana, and every beautiful unique name that is either a biblical place, name, or hebrew is short and ends in an Ah sound and then it sounds awful with her last name. I was flirting with the idea of Galilee, her middle name will be Violet. Any suggestions? I'd like something you don't hear too often. Thanks!

    Kinneret/Kineret Dana appeals to me. It's the Hebrew name for the Sea of Galilee. But Kinneret Violet is a bit repeat-y. Kinneret Vivien Dana? (Vivien means 'life' which is pretty...)

    Other ideas that don't end in -a/-ah:
    Razili Dana
    Esther Dana
    Tamar Dana
    Michal Dana - mee-khal, not like Michael
    Miriam Dana, or in Greek, Mariamne (mar-ee-am-nee).
    Libi Dana - pronounced lee-bee, it means 'my heart' in Hebrew.

    There's plenty more Hebrew girls' names that end in -t I just think they sound kind of odd with Violet, and I do like Violet itself.

    Oh & Abigail, Eden, Esther, Eve, Phoebe, Rachel, Ruth..

    Or what about Abeline (from Abel), Abielle (from Abiela), Bethel, Eliane, Gavrielle, Joby, Joelle, Jubilee, Reuelle, Tamah, Zadie

    But my favorite is Ardith Violet. It means flowering field & I think it fits with the vintage feel of Violet, & also goes with your last name.

    & this site has some Hebrew
    names..
