Name: Sarah
Location: Tennessee

We are looking for a baby girl name that will complete our family. My husband is named Thaddeus and we have a son named Zachary James. I wanted a biblical name like ours but not too common. I offered the names Zipporah and Claudia, which got mixed reviews. They like Zoe or Avery. What do you think?

Zoe and Zachary make a mighty cute sib-set.  Since Zoe means "Life" and Zachary means "the Lord remembered" I think they compliment each other nicely even if Zoe isn't a biblical name.

 

Tabitha was a woman in the New Testament with a good reputation.  Tabitha and Zachary?

 

Anastasia means "resurrection" and Anastasia and Zachary make a good sib set.  Sabrina has many meanings as it's usage spread into Europe. But it was originally a form of Sabra meaning "thorny cactus" and used to descibe native Israelis who were considered tough on the outside but soft and sweet on the inside.  

 

Did any of those ideas help?

My all time favorite Biblical woman is Queen Esther, naming a baby after her you could use either Esther or her Hebrew name Hadassah

Here a few suggestions of some uncommon Biblical names:

 

Ariel/Arielle/Ariella (Ariel was used in the Old Testament as another name for the city of Jerusalem).

Delilah

Elisheva (Hebrew form of Elizabeth).

Jemima

Lydia

Naomi

Rebekah/Rebecca

Shoshannah 

Tirzah

Zara (form of Sarah)

 

A lot of Biblical names commonly used in English have many foreign variants that you might consider as well. Hope this helps!
