Here are some biblical girl names and their meanings that I found.

Abigail: King David's third wife, this name is Hebrew in origin and means "the father's joy." 1 Samuel 25:3

Adina: This name means "adorned, dainty, slender." Hebrew. 1 Chronicles 11:42

Ariel: Meaning "lion of God" this is actually another name for Jerusalem. Ezra 8:16

Bethany: This name means "house of figs, song" and is the name of a village near Jerusalem. Matthew 21:17

Chloe: This Greek name means "blooming." 1 Corinthians 1:11

Damaris: Another Greek name, this means "to tame." This was a woman in the bible who heard Paul speak at Mar's Hill. Acts 17:34

Dinah: A Hebrew name, this means "justified." This was the name of Jacob's only daughter. Genesis 30:21

Eden: This Hebrew name means "place of pleasure" and is found in the bible as God's garden of paradise. Genesis 2:8

Hagar: This is the name of the handmaid who served Abraham's wife Sarah. The name means "forsaken." Genesis 16:1

Hannah: This Hebrew name, meaning "favored prophet," was the name of Samuel's mother. 1 Samuel 1:2

Jael: This Hebrew name means "mountain goat, one who ascends" and was the name of a woman who slew the Canaanite captain Sisera. Judges 4:17

Joanna: This is another version of the name Joan or Jane and there were several disciples of Christ with this name. Luke 8:3

Leah: A Hebrew name meaning "delicate." The name of Jacob's first wife. Genesis 29:16

Lydia: A Greek place name, this means "from Lydia." This was also the name of a woman in the bible who was a businesswoman. Acts 16:14

Martha: This name has Aramaic roots and means "lady of the house." This was the name of the sister of Mary and Lazarus. Luke 10:38

Miriam: This is an older version of the name Mary and was the name of the sister of Moses who saved his life by hiding him in a basket. Exodus 15:20

Naomi: Meaning "pleasant," this was the name of Ruth's mother-in-law. Ruth 1:2

Priscilla: This Latin name means "ancient, venerable." This was the name of an early Christian missionary. Acts 18:2

Rachel: This Hebrew name means "ewe, female sheep." This was the name of Jacob's wife. Genesis 29:6

Talitha: Aramaic in origin, this means "little girl." The name of Jairus's daughter who was resurrected. Mark 5:41

Tamar: This Hebrew name means "date palm." Genesis 38:6

Zipporah: This name means "bird" and is of Hebrew origin. Exodus 2:21

I think Sarah would be the best choice loved by all maybe Eden or Abigal as the middle name?

Good luck x

Michal (pronounced Michelle or Michael) Was the name of King David's first wife, and Saul's youngest daughter. Maybe I'm biased, but I like it. :angry:

What about Esther? In the Old Testament, Esther is the name of the Jewish queen of King Ahasuerus of Persia who save her people from the wicked plans of Haman. It means Star. I love the symbolism!

Esther Marie
Esther Lynne
Esther Zariah
Esther Kylie
Esther Emily

Hope this helps a little! :D

My name is Hannah and it is certainly a biblical name, but I would not recommend it because I feel like it will be a tad bit outdated for your child. How about Gracie or Grace? These are cute names and don't seem old ladyish! Also ruthie is cute. Ive also heard of some people naming their daughters Nevaeh because it's heaven backwards. Naomi is an excellent choice as well bc it's biblical but not over used. Hope tho helps!
