Bible names for girls have been popular for girls for more than a generation now, with classic names such as Mary and Anna giving way to newly popular names such as Ada and Abigail. Many of the best-known Hebrew names for girls come from the bible, both the Old Testament (Sarah, Rachel) and the New Testament (Susannah, Tabitha).
