The first thing that I have to say is that I'm not a fan of any of those names, although I would strongly suggest Claudia from the names provided. Zipporah and Serafina are ok. I've never heard those names before, but I'm interested in continuing to help you find the perfect name.

Well ZIpporah has a pretty awful reputaion in the Bible so I am not so sure you want to use that. Check out this link: http://www.biblegate...-bible/Zipporah
I might be willing to suggest Hephzibah http://www.biblegate...bible/Hephzibah but it isn't easy for English speakers. If you want a Z name I would say Ziva or Zion (although neither are Biblical names of women). If
you want a New Testament name I would say Tabitha (also called Dorcas). If the woman's actions are important then Abigail. I wouldn't count out Selah or Shiloh if you are considering Serafina. Claudia has no appeal for me as a name and the vast majority of people would never associate it with the Bible.
In the Victorian era Talitha was common as Jesus said "Talitha cumi" to a little girl because it means "little girl, arise" in Aramaic. She was then raised from the dead by Jesus. If you are looking for an easy to pronounce name that is rich in meaning and easy on the modern ear I would vote Talitha!

I'm not a huge fan of Zipporah. Out of your list I really like Serafina, I think it's a beautiful name and would go well with Zachary.
Here's some other biblical names you may like...
Some cool place names from the Bible...

Serafina - 10/10 EXQUISITE!! Delicate, feminine and works perfectly for any age with a HEAVENLY meaning too-"Ardent Angel"! My only issue with this name for you, Sarah, is the same one I have for myself as my name is actually also Sarah!! The reason I have never used this name for any of my Daughters is because I'm worried that Seraphina and Sarah might be too close as names for a Mother and Daughter? What do you think?
Zipporah - 10/10 GORGEOUS!! This name is perfect in every way and is also on my Favourites List!! The meaning "Little Bird" is LOVELY and it would work PERFECTLY as a name with Zachary!
Claudia - 8/10 LOVELY! I love Claudia pronounced the German way "CLOUD-ih-yah", but am not keen on it's meaning "Lame".
God bless and all the very best!

As stated above, Zipporah isn't a good biblical figure in the bible, so that probably isn't a good option. Also, Serafina isn't a Biblical name?? (yes, I know it is loosely derived from Seraphim, but that's still not a name) Not that I'm saying you have to go Biblical, but that is something you said was important to you. Claudia is a great choice! Sweet Biblical person.
Atarah would be a pretty option. Not a whole lot of history on her, but at least none bad
Keturah is a good biblical figure.
Kezia was a daughter of Job, known for her beauty.
Sheerah was a daughter of Ephriam; known for being strong (physically).
Abia / Abiah was an ancestress of Christ.

If you want a unique, elaborate biblical name, I adore Hadassah, which is the Hebrew name of Queen Esther, who's a really cool Biblical gal and definitely a great role model.
