    I do think Jude is too masculine for a girl as a full name, and everyone would think she was a boy. I second the suggestion of Judith nn Jude.

    Other suggestions for Biblical/religious names (sorry for repeats):
    Hannah
    Elizabeth
    Rebecca
    Esther
    Ruth
    Felicity
    Evangeline
    Joan/Jean/Jeanne (Joan of Arc)
    Mary/Marie/Maria
    Angeline
    Agnes
    Catherine
    Audrey (Saint Etheldreda, also known as Audrey)
    ~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Scarlett, Portia, Felicity, Juliet
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy

    I think you should stick with the biblical theme so she''s not left out. If not naming her after a person, then you should go with places/things instead (shame about Ruby).

    I don't like Jude (boy or girl) but I adore Judah. Since Judah was both a man and a place, I think it's fine for either gender. I also love Judea. Other faves:
    Jasper
    Eden
    Chaldea (gives the nn Callie)
    Olivet
    Cilicia
    Dove

    I loved Ruby because of Proverbs 3:15 (more precious than rubies). Delilah I actually like, however she was a prostitute in the Bible so I wouldn't consider that one.

    nat108 how would you pronounce Judea? Jew-day-uh?

    Marie is my grandma's middle name and was actually the original form of Mary in the KJV 1611 Bible....so that's a thought. Or maybe Maree seems fresher to me

    What do you all think of Merit?

    I think about the verse that says we are saved by grace not by our own merit.
